This paper describes an overview of wireless communications based on fiber-radio technologies from the viewpoint of system applications, particularly in the area of microcell radio systems. Feasible fiber-radio networks design are detailed in order to increase system performance and cost effectiveness. The benefits of the evolving fiber-radio microcell system are discussed with a spectral delivery scheme to meet traffic demands. Foreseeable electronic and optic technologies are reviewed in light of the key parameters to optimize the overall system. This strategy will play a role in broadband and flexible networks.
