In this paper, we propose and simulate 2 OCDM × 4 WDM transmission system for a millimeter-wave (60 GHz) over fiber system to be used in broadband wireless access networks (BWANs). The general system setup is devised and the necessary building blocks identified. Results gathered (for a 155 Mbit/s per user system) under worst case parameter specifications and settings suggest indicate that system performance is severely limited by optical multiuser interference (OMUI) penalties. Several methods to reduce the OMUI limitations are described. These methods should ensure that this transmission scheme possible wavelength-reuse option for future MMW BWANs.
