Abstract: From the perspective of spectrum scarcity, Radio-on-FSO (RoFSO)system is the best available option as it operates at unlicensed optical frequencies with the salient features of high bandwidth, cost effectiveness, lower transmit power, immunity to electromagnetic interference and easy deployment. To cater to the high data rate requirement of 5G applications in the near future, RoFSO systems will definitely be the best assisted alternative technology to the conventional wireless systems. However, the atmospheric conditions and non-linearity of the optical link have got a bearing on the efficiency of the system. In this work, we have presented an analytical model for transmitting phase shift keying (PSK)modulated orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM)signals through free space optics (FSO)links. RL is the load resistor of the photo detector an Considering optical noises, nonlinear distortion resulting from laser diode and the atmospheric turbulence effect modelled by gamma-gamma distribution, we have derived a closed form closed-form bit error rate (BER)and outage probability expression for the aforementioned transmission system. Pointing error is also factored in for more accurate and appropriate analysis of the system performance. Better system performance was observed through use of aperture averaging technique. A case study has been undertaken for analyzing the FSO system performance with reference to BER for various seasons for the year 2016 over IIIT Bhubaneswar area by considering the wind speed and altitude at different floors of the building of the institute. 2019 Elsevier GmbH
