Paper Abstract

A hybrid pulse position modulation code division multiple access (PPM-CDMA) scheme is proposed and studied in the context of optical fiber video transmission and distribution. With compressed HDTV video rates of 5 - 20 Mbit/s and with the current optical fiber technology, the strategy is shown to be capable of accommodating up to 50 video channels. Original results are presented for the bit rate demonstrating that there exists an optimum PPM-CDMA order that maximizes the achievable bit rate at a given number of channels. Results are also presented for the digital video channels crosstalk which takes the form of false alarm errors caused by the OOC crosscorrelations. The optimum system operating parameters that minimize these errors are specified.
