Abstract:An optical RF feeding system for wireless access is proposed, in which the radio access points are distinguished by means of coherence multiplexing (CM). CM is a rather unknown and potentially inexpensive optical code division multiple access technique, which is particularly suitable for relatively short-range applications with moderate transmission bandwidth requirements. Subcarrier multiplexing (SCM) can possibly be used on top of CM, either as single-channel or multichannel SCM. The performances of the resulting distribution networks are analyzed, incorporating the effect of chromatic dispersion, optical beat noise, shot noise, thermal noise, and—in the case of multichannel SCM—intermodulation distortion. The results of the IEEE 802.11b standard for wireless LAN.
