A radio over multimode fiber (RoMMF) system for in-building wireless distribution employing a directly modulated Fabry-Perot (FP) transmitter and the central launch technique is presented. The worst-case spurious free dynamic range (SFDR) exceeds 105 dB×Hz2/3 up to 525 m of OM2 multimode fiber (MMF). Experimental and theoretical results are reported showing that this scheme outperforms a RoMMF system employing a distributed feed-back (DFB) laser diode (LD) and/or a mode scrambler to achieve overfilled launch (OFL). Long Term Evolution (LTE) signal transmission is achieved with high quality in terms of Adjacent Channel Leakage Ratio (ACLR) and Error Vector Magnitude (EVM).
