This paper proposes an ROF ubiquitous antenna architecture for the wireless CDMA system. The proposed system separates each component of independent signals passing through the multipath in radio and optical links, which are gathered at passive double star link, by using RAKE reception and the macrodiversity effect is obtained. Theoretical analysis shows that the proposed system improves BER performance by 22 dB and reduces the transmission power and its control range by 19 dB.
