Abstract

At the present time and as a result to the recent developed technology demand for higher data rate and capacity has been increased. For the wireless networks, the combination of radio over fiber (RoF) with  (XGPON) Gigabit-capable PON techniques produce a high data rate at lower cost. Thus, this paper illustrates that the performance of RoF-XGPON optical link has been analyzed for multi-channel through combining two multiplexing techniques, such as; Subcarrier Multiplexing (SCM) and Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM). The proposed system utilizes  WDM-xGPON and SCM-XGPON architecture combined with RoF technology with 10 Gpbs data rate and (2.4, 5.8, 10 and 15) GHz radio frequency (RF), when change the optical fiber length between (10 to 80) km. The network performance is compared with various digital quadrate amplitude modulation schemes, like ; 4 - QAM, 16 - QAM and 64 - QAM for various input power (-2, 2, and 6) dB. The performance analysis is based on the optical spectrum of transmitted and received signals for 4-channel, constellation diagram, eye diagram, bit error rate (BER), power received, and quality factor. The result explain that the WDM-XGPON-Rof performs better than SCM-XGPON-Rof for different modulation schemes. The bit error rate for WDM-XGPON less than the SCM-XGPON while the power received recorded to the WDM-XGPON greater than SCM-XGPON and the quality factor for SCM-XGPON less than the WDM-XGPON. Therefore The simulation results show that the WDM-XGPON-RoF gives better performance from SCM-XGPON-RoF. The software optisystem version 15 has been used to simulate this system.
