—We report about a Line of Sight Optical Wireless Communication (LoS OWC) system aided by a simplified Visible Light localization algorithm for tracking purposes. We show experimentally that by combining the LoS OWC system with the localization algorithm it is possible to provide a gross data-rate exceeding 300 Mb/s over a 90° illumination angle by using a… (More)
We propose a novel line coding combination (Inverse RZ coding in downlink and RZ in uplink) that extends the reach of WDM Passive Optical Networks based on Reflective SOAs with no in-line amplification. We achieved full downstream remodulation even when feeding the reflective SOA with power levels as low as -35 dBm, thus increasing the system power budget.… (More)
A novel technique allows an easy and accurate estimation of the system BER by collecting the statistical distribution of the analog samples, i.e. before decision. The scheme is confirmed by both simulations and experimental measurements.
