The optically transmitted multichannel microwave signals, like those in the community antenna television (CATV) systems, use the subcarrier multiplexing (SCM) technique. The fiber optic analog SCM systems are amplitude modulated with vestigial sideband (AM-VSB), and the VSB modulation technique helps eliminate fiber dispersion effect  and provides dispersion compensation . Also, these systems provide flexibility ...
