Phase Carrier approach based on Optical Code Division Multiple Access Networks



A technique for optical code-division multiple-access (OCDMA) spectral amplitude coding is proposed and analyzed. The proposed approach is based on combining both OCDMA systems over a phase carrier. Compared with conventional OCDMA systems, this approach exhibits numerous advantages such as simplicity in the system design and cost efficiency. The phase shift based on phase modulation is adopted in the proposed system, and the orthogonal function based on the random diagonal code is applied. The proposed scheme is considered cost-effective because only one laser source is used; which minimizes interference for access network passive optical network applications and improves the system performance of bit-error rate (BER 10-12).
