Performance of Wireless LAN using photonic active integrated antennas


Article reports on the successful demonstration of the use of the photonic active integrated antenna in Wireless LAN (IEEE 802.11a), when microwave communication signals are delivered between the Access Points and the antenna points in antenna distributing systems via optical fiber. The results of the comparison investigation of the degradation of the dynamic range of the different systems configurations caused by the insertion of the fiber-optic link and photonic active integrated antenna have been presented.
