In this paper, the performance of the uplink of a WCDMA radio over fibre (RoF) access network during macrodiversity mode is investigated. We propose a novel macrodiversity scheme in the uplink, based on maximum ratio combining (MRC) of the received symbols by different BS receivers of a WCDMA mobile cellular system with RoF. Our simulation results demonstrate that, for a given service, the coverage efficiency increased by 19%-23% (depending on the channel model and the mobile speed) in the case of MRC as compared to selection combining (SC).
