In this paper, we experimentally realized a gigabit-class indoor visible light communication system using commercially available RGB White LED and exploiting an optimized DMT modulation. We achieved data rate of 1.5 Gbit/s with single channel and 3.4 Gbit/s by implementing WDM transmission at standard illumination levels. In both experiments, the resulting(More)
In this paper we present and critically discuss different wavelength division multiplexing passive optical network (WDM-PON) architectures compatible with pre-existing gigabit PON (GPON) infrastructures. The concurrent use of the trunk fiber permits a hitless evolution from an existing time division multiplexing optical access network to a point-to-point(More)
This paper presents the high-level COCONUT architecture of an optical access network based on coherent technology, supporting ultra-dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM). The COCONUT network should allow for seamless evolution from present PON architectures, but also support new emerging applications such as mobile back-haul and front-haul. Coherent(More)
We demonstrate a novel technique that allows effective homodyne optical phase locking to a phase shift keying (PSK) signal with a residual carrier. We exploit 8b10b coding of the signal in order to reduce its low frequency spectral content, suppressing the data-to-phase crosstalk effect. In a transmission experiment on a 10 Gb/s binary PSK signal (8 Gb/s(More)
A visible light communication system is experimentally demonstrated by employing RGB LEDs directly modulated with DMT signal. Data rate of 780 Mbit/s is achieved for the first time at 2.5 m, common indoor ceiling-desk distance. OCIS codes: (060.0060) Fiber optics and optical communications; (060.2605) Free-space optical communication.
Direct-detection of differential phase shifted keying (DPSK) optical signals is implemented either by ad hoc optical filtering or one-bit delayed optical interferometers. We show a coherent receiver where the filtering is performed in the electrical domain after down-converting the incoming signal to the baseband or to an intermediate frequency. This can be(More)
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 datarate exceeding 300Mb/s over a 90° illumination angle by using a RGB(More)
