An unfiltered 1310nm semiconductor optical amplifier is employed as an inline power booster in a low-cost directly-modulated, 100km radio-over-fibre link to compensate for the attenuation of the fibre. Substantial performance enhancement has been achieved. In addition, an application of this technique within a distributed antenna system with a tree architecture supporting in excess of 100 antennae is experimentally simulated.
