A 120-GHz-band wireless link that uses millimeter-wave (MMW) photonic techniques was developed. The output power and noise characteristics of 120-GHz-band MMWs generated by converting a 125-GHz optical subcarrier signal were evaluated. It was then shown that the noise characteristics of the 125-GHz signal generated with these photonic technologies is sufficient for 10-Gb/s data transmission. We constructed a compact 120-GHz-band wireless link system, and evaluated its data transmission characteristics. This system achieved error-free transmission of OC-192 and 10-GbE signals over a distance of more than 200 m with a received power of below -30 dBm.
