A new architecture for a millimetre-wave band radio-over-fibre system is proposed. Both optical carrier suppression and injection locking effect are used to simultaneously generate a 1.25Gbit/s wired signal and a 63GHz wireless one. Error-free transmissions (bit error rate of 10-11) of downlink and uplink data are achieved to verify the proposed scheme. No impact of a downlink data transmission on an uplink one owing to the wavelength reuse is observed. It is checked that there is only the 2dB power penalty of the uplink owing to the Rayleigh backscattering noise.
