Abstract: Hybrid architecture based on Wavelength Division Multiplexing Passive Optical Networks (WDM-PON) and Radio-over-Fiber (RoF) technology to deploy Generalized Frequency Division Multiplexing (GFDM) signals in 5G Heterogeneous Networks (HetNet) is proposed in this paper. The proposed RoF technology is the combination of Optical and Wireless communications that is used to reduce the base stations and to provide feasibility in high capacity connections and flexibility over long distance. This paper mainly focuses on increasing the coverage area without much path loss in the densely populated areas. By using microcells in GFDM system, this technology significantly enhances the data capacity of the users and also provides wider coverage area. The performance of GFDM is analyzed by computing the throughput and various parameters that affect the capacity of the system. The obtained simulation results proved that the proposed technique performs much better than conventional techniques.
