In this paper the integration of wireless and optical networks has been presented. Analog link design calculations and analysis are discussed. A detailed comparative experimental and simulation study of the dynamic operation and the nonlinear distortion in laser diodes is used to verify the accuracy of the proposed model for analyzing the performance of the analog optical interface. The measured results, such as harmonic and intermodulation distortion levels, are in good agreement with the simulation results. Second and third order intermodulation improvements attained using a proposed predistorter are presented.
