Optimum combination of light source and medium (optical fiber) for radio-over-fiber application in home optical network was investigated. Japan National Television System Committee (NTSC-J) signal was employed to study the spectrum and the movie quality in different multi-mode fiber link. Noise in glass-based multi-fiber link was lowered by switching the light source from a Fabry-Perot (FP) to a vertical cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL). A graded-index plastic optical fiber (GIPOF) link performed a low-noise transmission using FP laser diode. The results supported the GIPOF link to be a good low-cost analog optical link solution using FP laser diode and no lens.
