RF-over-Fiber Solutions are widely used in the entertainment industry which require Radio Frequency transmits over an optical fiber cable. RF over Fiber (RFoF) refers to a technology whereby a radio frequency signal modulated light and transmitted over an optical fiber link.  The satellite ground stations or teleports use an effective method of wire-based transmission of RF signals between field-based receiving antennas and ICT control rooms or between different equipment centers. Further, these signals transmits over an optical fiber cable to the destination. At the beginning of the era of transmission, copper or coaxial cables are used which are replaced by fiber optics. RF over Fiber technology has several advantages over copper-based counterparts such as significant lower transmission losses and higher signal quality which results in a future-proof connectivity platform in any environment. The system includes optic fiber cables, chassis, splitters and combiners, optical switches, optical DE multiplexer modules and others. The demand of RF-over-Fiber Solutions is increasing due to the new applications such as sound recording and transmission which is expected to grow the market. It is getting attraction in small players who organize orchestra, music shows, and others. RF-over-Fiber Solutions market is expected to witness an escalating demand among the consumers and industries because of its broad applications.
