Radio access network over Fiber (RoF) technology combines both wireless and fiber-optic technology. The advantages of this technology are low attenuation, bigger network bandwidth, easy installation and management, reduced power consumption, multiservice, dynamic allocation of resources. There are many methods of designing optical and wireless networks. Since RoF combines these technologies, the design tasks are a complex problem. Therefore there is a need for a new design method for RoF technology. The main problem in designing DWDM transport networks is the wavelength assignment of light paths. If the network topology has a great need to use heuristic methods there is one way to solve this problem: use of the BCO-RWA algorithm.
