We experimentally demonstrate photonic millimetre wave signal generation and distribution over hybrid networks based on wired and wireless links. Optical frequency multiplication based on carrier-suppressed modulation has been employed for generating millimetre wave signals in the 40 – 90 GHz frequency range and 10 Gb/s 32-QAM signals have been successfully transmitted over fiber/FSO networks showing the potentiality of such architectures for future 5G networks deployment in terms of flexibility and coverage.
