In this paper, the authors report on an experimental validation of dynamic distribution of wireless-over-fiber by employing optical switching using semiconductor optical amplifiers; the rest of the network was designed according to the channel distribution over the optical spectra required by the optical switch. An experimental validation was also conducted. The experiment consists of a four Wavelength Division Multiplexed (WDM) channel system operating on a WiMax frequency band, and employing an Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiplexing (OFDM) modulation at 625 Mbit/s per channel, transmission of the data over 20 km of optical fiber, and active switching in a one-by-sixteen active optical switch.
