In the present paper, the authors have proposed Radio Over Fiber (ROF) technology which allows Radio Frequency (RF) transmission directly over the optical fiber has attracted much attention due to its promising performance and operational cost reduction. The well known advantages of optical fiber as a transmission medium such as low loss, light weight, large bandwidth characteristics, small size and low cable cost make it the ideal and most flexible solution for efficiently transporting radio signals. They have presented and modeled with parametrical investigation the transmission performance characteristics of the ROF system that is modulated with multiple bit rates using different transmission techniques such as Soliton, and Maximum Time Division Multiplexing (MTDM) technique.
