High speed data streaming has been highly demanded by mobile end users and millimetre-wave (mm-wave) radio-over-fiber (RoF) optical communications have been studied to satisfy the users' demands. To solve various impairments existing in mm-wave RoF systems, neural networks have been proposed and studied due to their capability in solving nonlinear effects and multiple impairments simultaneously. However, previous studies mainly focused on the fully-connected neural network (FC-NN), which has relatively complicated architecture and a large number of parameters to be learnt. To solve this issue, we have proposed the convolutional neural network (CNN) and binary convolutional neural network (BC..
