F-CELLULAR Fiber Optic Tranciever for cellular frequencies : GSM, PCS, and CDMA Base Station Links

The F-CELLULAR systems are for linear fiber optic transceivers for cellular over fiber applications specifically designed for high performance optical links between cellular base stations (BTSs), links between BTSs and microcells, or general radio over fiber (RF over Fiber) applications. We offer equipment for CDMA over fiber, GSM over fiber, WiMAX over fiber as well as more modern standards such as 3GPP over fiber. This is useful for extending the range of a wireless cellular network. When connected to a wireless antenna an F-CELLULAR unit amplifies the incoming RF signal, converts it to an optical signal, transports it over a fiber optic cable to a second F-CELLULAR unit, and then reconverts the signal back to an RF carrier for rebroadcast over a second antenna. This system can be used to extend coverage of a wireless cellular network to an area up to 120 km from the source. Our F-CELLULAR units are a low noise, radio frequency fiber optic transceiver for cellular over fiber applications. Our units are designed for applications such as CDMA over fiber, GSM over fiber, and other cellular over fiber applications. RS-232 control signals can also be carried over the same optical fiber. Our optics offer high linearity and superior performance over a wide range of operating temperatures. Operation over a single fiber is enabled through the incorporation of a WDM system at 1550 and 1310 nanometers. If you need a solution for RF over fiber contact one of our sales representatives today. This is a constantly changing field; our team of engineers are better able to help you find a solution. We can help you develop a solution to your particular application.

Radio over Fiber (RoF) refers to a technology whereby light is modulated by a radio signal and transmitted over an optical fiber link to facilitate wireless access. Although radio transmission over fiber is used for multiple purposes, such as in cable television (CATV) networks and in satellite base stations, the term RoF is usually applied when this is done for wireless access.
