A novel Peer-To-Peer (P2P) interconnection architecture in a 60-GHz millimeter-wave (mm-wave) Radio-over-Fiber (RoF) access network is proposed for the first time. In this paper, the beating of the light waves for downlink and P2P transmissions at the PhotoDiode (PD) can provide signal up-conversion for both signals. Phase noise and frequency instability between the two independent light waves can be eliminated by a self-heterodyned Radio Frequency (RF) receiver (envelope detector) located on the user terminal, which can also down-convert simultaneously the two mm-wave signals to their associated intermediate frequencies.
