A new architecture for bidirectional millimeter-wave band radio-over-fiber system is proposed; both optical carrier suppression and injection locking effect are used to simultaneously generate a 1.25-Gb/s wired signal and a 63-GHz 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 due to the wavelength reuse is observed. It is checked that there is only the 2-dB power penalty of uplink due to the Rayleigh backscattering noise.
