Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

In this paper, we have shown that optical code division multiplexing (O-CDMA) systems at 10 Gb/s that can support at least 10 simultaneous users with BER<10-9 can be effectively designed for implementation in real networks. The carrier-hopping prime code is chosen to offer the optimum correlation values and maximum cardinality while providing a satisfactory bit error rate (BER). The encoder design can be advantageous of scalability allowed by increasing the code matrix size and the complementary decoder reduces cardinality limitations.
