Performance-enhanced NOMA-VLC using subcarrier pairwise coding

Performance-enhanced NOMA-VLC using subcarrier pairwise coding
Performance-enhanced NOMA-VLC using subcarrier pairwise coding

To alleviate the error propagation issue of non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) based visible light communication (VLC) systems, we propose and experimentally demonstrate the subcarrier pairwise coding (PWC) based NOMA-VLC. Without extra coding overhead, the computation-efficient subcarrier PWC can significantly improve the overall system performance by pairing the subcarriers of high signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs) with those of low SNRs. Under different transmitted baud rate from 150 MSa/s to 225 MSa/s, the bit error rate (BER) performance with and without PWC is investigated in a NOMA-VLC system. Experimental results show that with the optimized power ratio between the NOMA users, up to 3.3-dB Q2-factor improvement can be achieved by the proposed scheme.

Abstract

To alleviate the error propagation issue of non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) based visible light communication (VLC) systems, we propose and experimentally demonstrate the subcarrier pairwise coding (PWC) based NOMA-VLC. Without extra coding overhead, the computation-efficient subcarrier PWC can significantly improve the overall system performance by pairing the subcarriers of high signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs) with those of low SNRs. Under different transmitted baud rate from 150 MSa/s to 225 MSa/s, the bit error rate (BER) performance with and without PWC is investigated in a NOMA-VLC system. Experimental results show that with the optimized power ratio between the NOMA users, up to 3.3-dB Q2-factor improvement can be achieved by the proposed scheme.
