An increase in the demand of broadband service has encouraged research and study to find a solution to offer an adequate amount of service. Living in this digital world with downloading video, voice or data leads occasionally to have a shortage of bandwidth in the provided data. One of the solutions to cover the huge expected demand in the future is improving the communication systems by adding optical passive components to the Radio over Fiber (RoF) system. This paper is mainly to increase the bandwidth that allows the small and single consumer at the last mile. The authors have shown that by adding the 40-GHz mm-wave to the system, Bit-Error-Rate (BER) has increased while Q-factor has decreased.
