The next generation of broadband wireless and satellite communication networks will embrace artificial intelligence (AI) and adopt cognitive Software Defined Radio (SDR) and cognitive network architectures allowing seamless and intelligent networking and communication between different users and different services and operators. This trend call for the integration and adoption of Radio-Frequency (RF), millimeter-wave and optical technologies to develop the required reconfigurable and broadband front-end modules (FEM) capable of delivering multi-Gbps data rate, with low energy consumption. This talk will layout the advantage to use RoF technology in the next generation of broadband wireless and satellite communication networks and discuss the technical challenges that lay ahead for the adoption and integration of such technology in fronthaul broadband wireless networks and future multi-satellite communications. Examples of development and implementation of RoF technology in designing RF and mm-wave FEMs for wireless and satellite application will be discussed.
