Characteristics of FSO Channel in the WIFO Project
With explosive growth of Internet access from smart phones and tablets, increasing bandwidth for WIFI system is badly needed. Depending on two years’ research, we produced a novel communication system called WIFO system, which integrates both RF (Radio Frequency) and FSO (Free Space Optical) techniques. WIFO system can significantly increase the wireless capacities due to retaining the mobility offered by WIFI systems. According to our research, the potential bandwidth of WIFO could be at least 50Mbits/sec per user, which is more advanced compared to existing WIFI system. Since the WIFO system mainly depends on the FSO (LED) channel, it is necessary to characterize it. In hence, this dissertation will analyze FSO (LED) channel via measuring the bit error rate in different situations and implementing Reed Solomen code to reduce transmitting errors.
