We propose in this letter a simple and cost-effective method for a bandwidth enhancement of multimode fiber (MMF) using periodic mode scrambling. Simulations and experiments were carried out to verify the feasibility of this method, and results show that the bandwidth of multimode fiber is increased by about two times. This scheme can be used to support future large-bandwidth applications by upgrading existing MMF links.
