Paper Abstract

Radio-over-Fiber (RoF) is a promising technology with a number of benefits including huge bandwidth, high reliability, transparency and flexibility that make it attractive to fulfill the future broadband bandwidth requirements. These optical-wireless network architectures have potential to support broadband wireless access at over 1Gbps. Potential areas include WDM-based RoF architectures with dispersion mitigation to further enhance spectral efficiency of overall system. Cost-effective full-duplex solution that supports uplink and downlink data transmission at high RF is another area to focus and is covered in the review. This paper explains the RoF approach and various related aspects. It also provides a comparative analysis on recently proposed RoF architectures. In addition, strengths and weaknesses of proposed architectures and employed techniques are identified with future directions for possible enhancements indicated.
