Paper Abstract

This paper deals with the implementation issues concerning efficient usage of optical Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) Local Area Networks (LANs). It first discusses user requirements and how these determine the structure and design of LANs. It then goes on to introduce optical CDMA LANs and the various techniques that are used to provide an efficient communication media. The paper then continues with an investigation of the various problems concerned with efficient usage of this media and proposes methods that may be used to overcome these problems based on soliton logic and transmission. Issues such as electronic hardware limitations, PN sequence generation and synchronization are covered. The paper is concluded by a summary of the feasibility of the methods discussed. Proposals for methods of implementation are made and obstacles requiring solution before the techniques become attractive for wide use in LANs are highlighted.
