The combination of radio over fiber (RoF) and orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) techniques has resulted in a high-data-rate at lower cost in the last mile of wireless networks. This paper investigates the use of the OFDM as a modulation technique for radio over fiber (RoF) in passive optical network (PON). A laser source of 1550 nm wavelength was used with 100 km, 140 km and 288 km single mode fiber. In the OFDM-PON a passive optical splitter of ratio 1:2 is used to connect two
