Impact of user distribution on optical wireless systems

by   Khulood D. Alazwary, et al.

In this paper, we investigate the impact of user distribution on resource allocation in visible light communication (VLC) systems, using a wavelength division multiple access (WDMA) scheme. Two different room layouts are examined in this study. Three 10-user scenarios are considered, while an optical angle diversity receiver (ADR) with four faces is used. A mixed-integer linear programming (MILP) model is utilized to identify the optimum wavelengths and access point (AP) allocation in each scenario. The results show that a change in user distribution can affect the level of channel bandwidth and SINR. However, a uniform distribution of users in the room can provide a higher channel bandwidth as well as high SINR above the threshold (15.6 dB) for all users compared to clustered users, which is a scenario that has the lowest SINR with supported data rate above 3.2 Gbps.
