The fiber-optic sectorized remote antenna system by using the radio frequency (RF) optical transmission technique was promising for increasing the number of subscribers in the millimeter-wave broadband wireless access (MMW BWA) networks. To realize the cost-effectiveness of the fiber-optic sectorized remote antenna system covering four areas, we reached the conclusion that the best multiplexing schemes were the sub-carrier division multiplexing (SCM) of the intermediate frequency (IF) signals of 2 GHz for the down link, the coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM) with the IF signals optical transmission for the up link and 1.3/1.55 µm-WDM for multiplexing the down link and the up link. In addition, the target specifications of this SCM-CWDM system were described, and the designs of the carrier to noise ratio (CNR) and the third order intermodulation distortion (IM3) were examined.
