We present a wireless link budget analysis for impulse-radio ultrawideband (IR-UWB) systems with different pulse-shaping techniques using a realistic path loss model. Simulation results confirm that a proper pulse design technique is crucial for satisfying Federal Communications Commission mask requirements and performance enhancement of IR-UWB systems. We present a novel pulse design technique, based on a linear combination of modified doublets pulses and compare it with conventional pulses such as monocycle, doublet and fifth-order derivative of Gaussian pulses. The proposed pulse outperforms the conventional pulses in terms of spectral power efficiency and achievable reach using an M-ary pulse-amplitude modulation format and a fixed data rate. Furthermore, we propose and experimentally demonstrate routing over a hybrid wired-wireless network of IR-UWB services using the proposed pulse shape. The routing functionality is realized using a single semiconductor optical amplifier based on the cross-gain modulation technique. Error-free transmission of both 1.25 Gb/s baseband wired services and 2 Gb/s wireless IR-UWB services has been achieved over 1 km fiber link. The proposed technique can efficiently distribute and multicast both wireless IR-UWB and wired services in future in-building networks.
