Paper Abstract

Home users are in need for broadband communications access, globally. Broadband over power-lines transmission has advanced throughout the last decade, and it is going to be a mature last-mile access in near future. Meanwhile, indoor optical wireless communications (optical WiFi) through lighting LEDs has been investigated, recently. It is shown that a combination of these two techniques provides an efficient way of fulfilling the premise of broadband access for home networking, while providing efficient and low-cost lighting.
