Claim of US Patent No. 10,772,102

1. A method, comprising:receiving, by a processing system including a processor, a first modulated signal in a first spectral segment directed to a mobile communication device, the first modulated signal conforming to a signaling protocol;
converting, by the processing system, the first modulated signal in the first spectral segment to the first modulated signal at a first carrier frequency without modifying the signaling protocol of the first modulated signal, the first carrier frequency being outside of the first spectral segment; and
transmitting, by the processing system, a reference signal with the first modulated signal at the first carrier frequency to a network element of a distributed antenna system, the reference signal enabling the network element to reduce a phase error when reconverting the first modulated signal at the first carrier frequency to the first modulated signal in the first spectral segment for wireless distribution of the first modulated signal in the first spectral segment to the mobile communication device.
