The concept of the transportation of a microwave environment over networks using a digitized Radio-on-Fibre (DRoF) technique as well as the concept of in-network microwave processing, which could make the concept of "wired and wireless network virtualization" into a reality, is discussed. The new applications to a radio-on-demand service (RoD), software-defined radio-aware network (SDRAN), and microwave environments cloud are introduced. 10-Gbps Ethernet based microwave-to-network interface converter (MiNIC) are developed and the transportation of multiple digital TV broadcasting signals is demonstrated. It is shown that the MiNIC should use more than 8-bits resolution in digitization of a microwave environment when 7 channels of TV signals are included in it. The concept of remote microwave environments observation over networks is demonstrated, where the frequency channel and received signal strength indication (RSSI) of the detected digital TV broadcasting signals are remotely monitored.
