We describe a novel architecture of broadband ubiquitous femto-cell network with MIMO distributed antenna systems accommodated in WDM-PON. A technical convergence of WDM-PON and time division multiplexed RoF techniques can realize the universality of base stations with various types of broadband air interfaces, the increase of wireless access throughput, and the scalability of service area covered by MIMO distributed antenna systems. We discuss the configuration of MIMO antenna systems, transmission scheme of MIMO RF signals over WDM-PON, and configurations of center station and base stations. The preliminary experiments of proposed network architecture are demonstrated.
