PCS-over-fiber system

The PCS-Over-Fiber system permits wireless operators to deploy personal communications services networks over future and existing fiber-optic cable. With the system, fiber-optic networks can transport PCS signals between distributed antennas and the telephone network. A series of small transceiver units, or fiber remote heads, provide the interface between PCS air frequencies and the fiber network. Each unit contains a transceiver, power amplifiers, and an RF-to-fiber interface. The system supports the code-division multiple access transmission protocol at all PCS frequencies.
