We will propose a dynamic reconfigurable wavelength-division-multiplexed (WDM) millimeter-waveband (mm-waveband) radio-over-fiber (RoF) access network and demonstrate, for the first time, a dynamic-channel-allocation capability of millimeter-waveband optical RoF signals in WDM access network using a supercontinuum light source, arrayed-waveguide gratings, and a reconfigurable optical-crossconnect switch. The dynamic reconfigurable RoF network architecture is presented, and its features are described. Then, four 155-Mb/s RoF channels are effectively generated, transmitted through 25 km of fiber, switched, transmitted again through 2 km of fiber, and detected with an error-free operation (bit error rate < 10-10). The proposed RoF architecture is highly scalable, both in terms of channel and access-point counts.
