Indonesia launched a program to transition from analog to digital television (DTV) systems to improve the efficiency and quality of signals; however, the infrastructure available to support this was challenged by the country's unique topography and population distribution. Yet an optical fiber backbone has reached most districts via the Palapa Ring Project, and this infrastructure can be useful to support broadcasting in remote blind areas. Therefore, this study proposes and analyzes transmission schemes that use optical fiber distribution to support DTV access in remote areas. This paper discusses two radio over fiber (RoF) distribution schemes: fiber to the tower and fiber to the home as candidates for solving these issues, with optical fiber links providing the central backbone for the broadcasting systems. Link loss budgets are analyzed to calculate the loss from the signal source to both the tower and the end user. This analysis is considered for seven Indonesian regions that represent typical geographic and distance issues. Different schemes are recommended for each region based on link loss considerations along all routes and existing infrastructure and development required for specific conditions in each area.
