RF Over Fiber (RFoF)


Introduction


RF over Fiber (RFoF) products convert analog RF signals into optical signals which are then transmitted over optical fibers and converted back to RF signals at various bands. Replacing thick coaxial cables, Heliax or waveguides with optical fibers significantly reduces weight and infrastructure physical space in marine, airborne and balloon-based communication applications, whilst gaining cost effective communications with excellent performances.

RFOptic’s RFoF easy-to-use products are designed to connect remote antennas to central in-door locations over optical fibers in Communications, Satcom, Cellular, Defense, DAS, A/V and GPS applications and provide comprehensive solutions over fiber-optic infrastructure in land, marine, airborne and balloon-based communication applications.

Our off-the-shelf, low-cost, low-frequency RFoF products are provided in 0.1-1.5; 0.1-2.5, 0.1-2.7,0.1-3.0; 0.1-5.0 GHz frequency bands while our high-frequency products support 0.1-8.0; 0.1-15; 0.1-18 GHz frequencies. The former product line is optimized for IF, VHF, UHF, L and S bands while the latter supports IF, L, S, C, X and Ku bands. Our low frequency solutions can be customized to start from 10 KHz

RFoF’s flexible module design enables RFOptic to offer customized solutions with various mechanical dimensions to meet customer-specific application requirements. In addition, we can develop customized modules with multiple optical signals to be delivered over a single fiber.
