Radio over Fiber (RoF) is technology where the RF signal is transmitted using optical carrier. There is one Central Station (CS) to which number of Base Stations (BS) is connected via optical fiber. Most of the signal processing is done at CS and BS contains only optical- electrical (O-E) and electrical- optical (E-O) converters and antenna for RF signal transmission. Now a large scale infrastructure planner has to provide the all time connectivity to a given rural area using RoF technology while providing maximum coverage, subject to the constraint on number of BS required and fiber length required for connecting these BSs. We are assuming that the population of village is concentrated at a point and the BS capacity in terms of users is higher than the total population of any village it will serve. We will use the Voronoi Tessellation and Delaunay Triangulation in achieving our objectives.
