This paper proposes an optimum hybrid radio over multi-mode fiber and free space optics (RoMMF-FSO) system to enhance the last mile bottleneck issues of wireless communication systems. Single mode fiber (SMF) and gradient index (GRIN) lenses are used as mode filtering techniques to optimize the system performance by mitigating the modal effects produced by multimode optical fiber networks. We characterize the system based on the beam profile, transfer function, and error vector magnitude (EVM) measurements. The results reveal that both techniques can improve the EVM performance significantly by ~19% and ~30% using a SMF filter and SMF-GRIN lenses, respectively. Furthermore, the analysis of the obtained measurements show the SMF-GRIN lenses is more effective than SMF only with lower EVM values and negligible difference in the optical launch power.
