Millimetre wave radio-over-fibre links using both single mode and, for what is believed to be the first time, multimode fibres are demonstrated over a 0-50 GHz bandwidth using a external Mach-Zehnder modulator operating at 1550 nm. The multimode fibre links show the potential for use in low cost, distributed antenna systems
