For the realization of future wireless networks, gigabit wireless technology, which can achieve higher-than-1 Gbps data transmission with extremely low transmit power, is indispensable. We have been studying the distributed antenna network (DAN) and the frequency domain wireless signal processing. In DAN, many antennas or clusters of antennas are spatially distributed over a service area, and they are connected by means of optical fiber links with DAN signal processing center. A number of distributed antennas cooperatively serve mobile users using spatial multiplexing, diversity, array, or relaying technique. In this paper, the recent advances in single-carrier DAN are introduced.
