Tel Aviv – August 25, 2020 | RFOptic Ltd, a leading provider of RF over Fiber (RFoF) and Optical Delay Line (ODL) solutions, has published its latest white papers to explain why an optical solution using RF over Fiber is preferred over an RF solution, especially for 5G and multi-antenna array for EW applications”. It explains why only optical analog distribution performs exceptionally well over substantial distances while maintaining unmatched SFDR and dynamic range, allowing signals with disparate levels with minimal interference.

For some applications that require massive MIMO antenna arrays, long-distance signal transport, and even wider bandwidths, RF solutions become very difficult to design and implement, especially when there are many distribution points. Often, be the sheer weight and girth of coax cables become unmanageable. Or the frequency conversion adds too many side effects, which makes using an RF solution impossible. That is the reason why many scientific observatories, 5G and 6G tower infrastructure, ELINT and surveillance systems, multi-use target simulators as well as test ranges cannot use frequency conversion solutions.

 “We wrote these white papers since we got many requests from customers and distributors to explain why an optical solution is superior to an RF solution. We want to explain why a practical solution is needed for low power delivery of ultra-wide bandwidth signals to a massive number of distant ports over manageable and low-cost media without sacrificing signal quality”, explained Dr. Avner Sharon, CEO & CTO at RFOptic and co-author of the white paper.
