Optical CDMA Random Access Protocols With and Without Pretransmission Coordination

  title={Optical CDMA Random Access Protocols With and Without Pretransmission Coordination},
  author={Hossam M. H. Shalaby},
The link layer of an optical direct-detection code-division multiple-access (CDMA) packet network is considered. Two different protocols that need pretransmission coordination are proposed. A variation of the second protocol that does not need pretransmission coordination is discussed. Both system throughput and average packet delay are derived and investigated for two different receiver models: the correlation and chip-level receivers. Both multiple-access interference and the photodetector’s… CONTINUE READING
