This letter experimentally demonstrates a multiservices hybrid access network integrated radio-over-fiber and fiber-to-the-home systems which share the same distributed architecture. A 1.25-Gb/s baseband signal and a 14.375-GHz radio-frequency (RF) signal with 625-Mb/s binary phase-shift keying data are generated and transmitted employing a commercially available dual-electrode Mach-Zehnder modulator. The proposed scheme offers better performance, has no RF fading issue, can carry vector signals, and requires no optical filter at remote nodes. After transmission over 25-km single-mode fiber, the proposed scheme successfully achieves less than 0.5-dB sensitivity penalties.
