Abstract
A new wavelength division multiplexing (WDM)-based radio over fiber (RoF) system is proposed for optical virtual private network (OVPN) communication between inter-base stations (inter-BSs) or intra-BSs, using four-wave mixing (FWM) in a semiconductor optical amplifier as well as wavelength reflection of fiber Bragg gratings. By establishing inter-BSs and intra-BSs OVPN link of a 60-GHz WDM-RoF system, the private channels for the communication of end users under different BSs of sub-RoFs can be provided. In our scheme, 58 and 60-GHz millimeter waves are used to carry OVPN data and downstream data, respectively. Furthermore, the scalability of the proposed system is improved by the integration of an RoF system, WDM, and FWM. The simulation results successfully verify the feasibility of our proposed scheme.
