Paper Abstract

Optical CDMA offers an alternate solution for video transport/switching to WDMA. Optical CDMA potentially provides a large number of virtual optical circuits for video distribution and channel selection. In a video network, it provides asynchronous, multi-rate, multi-channel communication with network scalability, reconfigurability (channel on demand), and network security (provided by inherent CDMA coding). We have demonstrated a video transport/switching system over a distance of 40 Km using discrete optical components in our laboratory. We are currently pursuing Photonic Integrated Circuit implementation. In this paper, we will describe the optical CDMA video transport/switching system concept/features, the demonstration system, and the network applications to Hybrid Fiber/Coaxial, Fiber-To-The-Curb and Fiber-To-The-Home.
