Abstract
In this paper, we implement and optimize an optical fronthaul with low-cost analog transceivers able to transmit 20 MHz 4G-LTE signals. This setup is to be integrated in the ORCIP infrastructure which will be a state of the art testbed to
multi-radio access technologies. Experimentally, we demonstrate that this fronthaul is able to transmit a 64QAM 20 MHz LTE signal through 20 km SMF with a received EVM below 1.5%.
