This paper analyzes performance of optical wireless communication systems with multi-subcarrier OFDM as set out in the IEEE 802.16-2004 WiMAX standard. Average power efficiency, atmospheric turbulence, adaptive modulation as well as various noise models are considered. Performance is evaluated in a simulation environment with symbol error probability as the metric of interest. Results indicate that smaller constellation sizes are better suited for the optical wireless channel, as they provide… CONTINUE READING
