Analyses of performance of wireless broadband communication systems employing fiber-optic link have presented. We have analyzed CNR penalty to evaluate system performance by taking into account, radio link considering rainfall attenuation, and optical link considering several carrier-to-noise ratio versus the optical modulation index.
