RF over Fiber (RFoF) refers to a technology in which a radio frequency signal modulated light is transmitted over an optical fiber link. The signal is then transmitted over an optical fiber cable to the destination. The increasing digitization in the businesses has increased the demand for speed, thus the 5G segment in RF over the fiber is increasing. RF over the fiber is used to convert and transmit radio signals through cables. This technology has gained importance due to its varied applications and is cost effective. At the beginning of the era of transmission, copper or coaxial cables were used, which are replaced by fiber optics. To date, RF-over-Fiber solutions is employed by the entertainment and navigation industry. Many new applications are springing into the market every day which requires RF-over the fiber solutions because of their unique properties.
RF Over the Fiber 5G Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:
- Advent of High Speed Fiber Optical Solutions.
Fiber optics is a modern technology used predominantly in the telecommunication industry to transmit information digitally as pulses of light through strands of Fiber made of glass. The high speed data transmission is possible due the bursting or super imposing the data in the form of light signals due to which high data transmission speed over a long distance without attenuation is possible. As the number of internet users grows, so does the amount of bandwidth available per user, driving up the demand for high-speed optical fiber in the market.
- Growing Penetration of GSM Mobile Phones & Tablets
Modern digital wireless handsets have to perform and function as real communications hub that brings all the wide range of smart features to the cellular industry. These includes various features such as web browsing, e-mail, wireless PDA, voice memo, two-way paging, answering machine and global positioning system (GPS) in a single entity.
- Emergence of 4G/5G LTE Broad Band Connectivity
4G/5G is the next generation of wireless cellular technology. It will provide high speeds data up to 3000 Mbps (3 Gbps) in the real world. Smartphones and other smart devices will hugely benefits form 5G. The internet of things (IoT), will also tremendously benefit from the speed and bandwidth provided by 5G. Moreover, 5G network can also enhance connectivity & communication capabilities, as LTE/5G can offer much higher speeds communications offered at a significantly lower cost.
- Technological Limitation of RF Optical Fibers
Optical fiber is the method of choice for reliable delivery of high-bandwidth data. Because fiber optic communication is based on super imposing data in form of light signals which can propagate over a medium much faster when compared to other modes of data transmission. But there are few technological limitation which cause hindrance, one of the most significant limitations of fiber is its fragility. Optical fiber are typically made of glass, fiber cables are thinner and lighter than metallic wiring this makes fiber more prone to damage. Exposure to chemicals or radiation can damage a fiber optic network, and its fragile cables can easily be cut during building renovations and other.
- High Initial Cost of Investment for RF Optical Fibers
RF over Fiber (RFoF) network offers several beneficial factors such as high bandwidth, high speed, and lightweight, but all this comes with a high investment cost. The fiber optic network components are quite expensive. This is why other traditional cables are still preferred, where cost is a major factor in choosing the type of network.
Post COVID-19 Impact on RF Over the Fiber 5G Market
COVID-19 significantly impacted the RF Over the Fiber 5G market as almost every country has opted for the shutdown for every production facility except those dealing in producing the essential goods.
