Performance evaluation of ultra-wide band radio signals based on multi-band (MB) orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) system is presented. These systems are very attractive due to their capability to deliver high-speed data streams, their co-existence with the current radio standards and their suitability for transmission in fibre. In this paper, the work is focused on the simulation of both single-input-single-out (SISO) and multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) OFDM configuration with transmission over an optical channel model. Different system parameters and transmission strategies are analyzed to estimate the bit-error rate (BER) and packet-error-ratio (PER) performance.
