Due to its low propagation loss, large bandwidth, and competitive cost, optical fiber become one of the best solution for the backhaul. However, new fiber network deployment is still very expensive in outdoor and rural environment. This paper proposes and evaluates design of 5.8 GHz photonic antenna in a radio over fiber system for point-to-point applications. Simulation result shows that the proposed system can support 540 Mbps, 16-QAM, at 5.8 GHz for optical fiber length of 30 km, and extended with wireless distance of 10 km.
