The direct optical switching CDMA radio-on-fiber network is proposed as multiplexing method for radio base stations in microcell/picocell technologies. In this system, aliasing distortions degrade the received signal quality and decreases the number of connectable radio base stations (RBSs) when the encoding rate becomes lower than the twice of bandwidth of RF signal. This paper proposes the optical switching speed reduction method and clarifies that the chaotic spreading sequences can suppress the aliasing distortion without additional processing at the receiver even if the encoding rate becomes lower than the RF signal bandwidth. The effect in switching speed reduction is theoretically investigated and the effect in aliasing distortions suppression is experimentally investigated by using the proposed method.
