RF over fiber is where you modulate an RF signal onto the light beam and thus transmit it at a lower loss over a long distance. It is an analog usage as opposed to a digital one as used in data transmission such as an ethernet extender. I have found some equipment for doing this but have not yet found anything that appears it will do the full Internet + Cable TV solution to extend the pole to internet modem solution that is cheap enough to use.
- 0.1 to 1.5GHz RFOptics
- AFBR-2310Z – Fiber Optic Receiver for Multi GHz Analog Links 40MHz to 7GHz – would require translating cable modems signals up and then down
- Ebay: HIT HT2W-M800, RF over Optics ( O/E + E/O ) 2 way Link – SET of Master +SLAVE Transceivers, 800MHz Band
- Google: HT2W-M800
- Foxcom – appears focused in the RF over Fiber area.
For now this is not a viable solution to the house in the forest long internet cable extension problem. It will probably get there soon though.
