Rate Splitting in VCSEL-based Optical Wireless Networks

05/25/2021 ∙ by Khulood Alazwary, et al. ∙ 0

Optical wireless communication is an effective potential solution for enabling high speed next generation cellular networks. In this paper, laser sources, in particular, vertical-cavity surface-emitting (VCSEL) lasers are used for data transmission due to their high modulation speed compared with light emitting diode (LED) sources. To manage multi-user interference, rate splitting (RS) is implemented where the message of a user is split into common and private parts. However, the performance of RS is limited in high density networks. Therefore, hierarchical rate splitting (HRS) particularly suited in high density networks is considered. The results demonstrate the high data rate achieved by using VCSELs. Moreover, HRS is more suitable for achieving high performance in optical networks compared with RS.
