In this paper, the system-level performance of WCDMA with radio-over-fibre (RoF) access network is investigated. This paper aims at addressing issues such as coverage and transmit power reduction during macrodiversity. The simulation results demonstrate that, for a given service, the transmit power reduction is up to 50% (depending on the channel model and the mobile speed) in the case of the RoF technique as compared to the wireless link.
