    Optical CDMA is an advanced and flexible communication technology with a potential to offer very energy efficient and highly scalable networking. In addition it can also deliver increased physical layer privacy and on-demand bandwidth sharing management. We have developed, extensively investigated, and experimentally demonstrated highly scalable approach to incoherent OCDMA which can very efficiently increase the number of simultaneous users. In addition, the introduction of an advanced photonic signal processing results in an overall system power budget improvement by nearly 3dB. Error-free operation with the BER less than 10-12 was achieved. We have also shown that with demonstrated approach we can dramatically improve number of simultaneous network users (up to ten times) while keeping the related hardware count unchanged. By comparing this results to DWDM concept, this substantial increase in number of simultaneous users did not require to add any additional wavelength laser sources and was achieved by employing just three communication wavelengths.
