Fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks have been proposed as a means to extend the application of ultrawideband (UWB) radio signals in future wireless personal area networks to the delivery of high-definition content. In this paper, we analyze, using numerical simulation, the feasibility of the distribution of impulse-radio UWB signals with pulse amplitude modulation in long-reach FTTH networks. The simulation results show a severe performance degradation of the transmitted signals in FTTH networks… CONTINUE READING
