This paper presents some results from the analysis of microcell system integrated by optical links. It is used four propagation models (Tonguz-Jung, Okumura-Hata, Maciel-Bertoni-Xia, and Cost 231 Walfisch-Ikegami) with link optical model, where systems parameters like optical modulation index, carrier-tonoise ratio, height of transmission antenna, and power of transmission are under analysis. It is show that the Maciel-Bertoni-Xia and Cost 231 Walfisch-Ikegami models are the best to be used. The problems found with the four models are highlighted. The numerical simulation results for the optical-cellular system with diferent propagation models are presented.
