       IntroductionIn present situation, new term radio overfibre (Rof) technology is discussed. In these technology radio signal istransmitted using photonic device and optical fibre. For these set up is usedis known as MPF. In addition tunability and reconfigurability of the frequencyresponse is great attention for researcher. Rof has improvement in terms ofreliability, immune to electromagnetic interference (EMI), tunability overlarge bandwidth and low loss. Here analog optical link provide importantadvantage such as receiver sensitivity and possible usage of analog modulation.Potential applications of analog optical links include antenna remoting, cabletelevision systems, phased array radar and interconnection of microwave systems1.

Different processes of multi-source MPFs have been predicted, includingthe use of independent tunable laser diodes, spectrum slicing of broadbandoptical source and the usage of multimode Fabry-Perot (FP) laser 2.This paper mainly contains various set upfor MPF which is analysed and from that which type of frequency response wouldget and how that set up is used for communication purpose.  Survey has been done on methods of providinginternet onboard but it has not included new technologies.For MPF we can use various type ofoptical source. In this paper we discuss about two types of laser diode: 1) Multiwavelength Brillouin-erbium fiber laser(BEFL) and 2) multimode laser diode.                                                                               II.

        Using MultiwavelengthBrillouin-erbium fiber laser (BEFL)UsingMultiwavelength brillouin-erbium fiber laser MPF is designated andexperimentally described in 2.  Figure1 shows the representation of MPF using BEFL as optical source. BEFL arrangements operate at the linear gain of erbium-doped fiberamplifier (EDFA) and Brillouin gain in optical fiber to understandmultiwavelength lasing. By adjusting the pump power, the number of lasingchannels in BEFL can be easily controlled that is used to pump the erbium dopedfiber for precise controlling of optical taps. Since the wavelength spacing of0.089 nm between adjacent channels is very small in this case, adequateadjustment of the filter discernment can thus be achieved 2.FSR is given by6                                                                            (1)Where D is the total dispersion ofthe dispersive medium and ? is the wavelength spacing between adjacentwavelengths.In figure 1 The BEFL consists standardsingle mode fiber (SMF) of a length of 5 km and  EDF of a length of 10 m, confined in betweentwo Faraday mirrors.

To deliver pump power to the EDF, a 980 nm laser diode wasused. A tunable laser source as the Brillion pump (BP) was coupled to thecavity via a 3-dB coupler 2. Tuning the EDF pump power adjusts the number ofoutput wavelengths accordingly, whereas varying the BP wavelength changes theoutput wavelengths of the laser. To modify the spectral profile of BEFL, theprogrammable spectral processor (PSP) is used 2.

The radio frequency (RF)signal from a network analyzer using an electro-optic modulator (EOM) ismodulated on carrier signal. The regular gain region of an EDFA was utilized toensure linear amplification of the modulated signal before it was sent througha dispersive medium, which was a 23 km dispersion compensation fiber (DCF) 2.The DCF has a chromatic dispersion of about ?245 ps/nm/km,which gives a total accumulated dispersion of ?5635 ps/nm 2.An optical-to-electrical conversion was performed with a 70 GHz photodetector(PD) (XPDV3120R from u2t) 2.  Figure 1. Schematic of MPF with BEFL as asource 2Usingabove set up for MPF, the magnitude of frequency response is given by as 3           (2)Where R=photodetector responsivity, ?0=centralwavelength, N=total number of optical carriers, Pn=optical powerof tap n.

Figure2(b) shows the optical spectrum of the BEFL and Figure 2(c) shows the frequencyresponse of the MPF in which BEFL is used as optical source and 8 tap 2.Figure2.

The spectral profile ofthe PSP is shown in red.                                                                                                                             III.

       Using Multimode laser diodeThe main topology for MPF used in 4 isas described in figure 3. It is mainly established multimode laser diode (MLD),optical isolator (OI), polarization controller (PC), mach zehnder intensitymodulator (MZ-IM), single mode standard fibre (SM-SF), photo diode (PD). Figure 3.Basic topology for MPF 3As per 4 frequency response of MPF isdirectly related to the spectrum of laser diode used. So for periodicity of theresponse MLD is important. To obtain good optical stability OI is used becauseit avoids reflection of MLD. To control output power of MZ-IM polarizationcontroller is required.

To give input electrical signal electrical signalgenerator is used and this electrical signal is modulated on optical carriersignal. After modulator, modulating signal is enter into SM-SF and then theseoptical signal converted into electrical signal using PD. Then output signal isanalyze using electrical spectrum generator. In the frequency response of MPF centralfrequency of band-pass window is given as 4 is                                                                                   (1)And the bandwidth at 3-dB of theband-pass window is given by 4                                                                          (2)Where  is optical bandwidth of the MLD. The MLD usedin these experiment 4 is (OKI-OL5200N-5) is as shown in figure 4.

Same way using different parameter of MLD and SM-SF we canget appropriate frequency response.

These parameters are FSR of optical source,dispersive parameter and length of fibre used. As per application we can decideparameter of MLD and SM-SF. Here two application is described one istransmission of wireless signal and another is transmission of TV signal.
