Abstract—Wireless Radio Access Point (RAP) For Radio Over Fiber (ROF) System is becoming an increasingly important technology for the indoor wireless market. The dynamic range requirements and optimum choice of laser are identified for this application. A novel architecture based on the radio over fiber application is proposed for indoor application, which gives important benefits in terms of design, installation and operation of the systems used. To meet increasing of user bandwidth and wireless demands, the Wireless design based on ROF technology has been proposed as a promising cost effective solution. In this network, a central station (CS) is connected to numerous RAP using an optical fiber to indoor connection. The aim of this project is to predict the service range for RAP for downlink transmission. The indoor RF front end consists of a photodiode, bandpass filter (BPF), power amplifier (PA) and an antenna which operating at 2.4GHz band. BPF is needed to remove out the frequency from nonlinear effect of fiber and pass through the signal at the operating frequency. The RF front end components are modelled using S-Parameter measured data from factory. Indoor picocells are used power lower than 1 Watt (30 dBm) and service range of more than 100 meters.
