We demonstrate the insensitivity of the envelope detection based mobile terminal to phase fluctuations of the RF signal. This property enables the generation of radio over fiber (RoF) signals heterodyning non-narrow linewidth laser signals and using direct modulation. We report the experimental generation of up to 2-Gb/s orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) signals and their transmission over a 25-km long fiber span using direct modulation and DFB lasers with a combined linewidth of 2.1 MHz with a resulting BER below 10-3.
