Optical Wireless Communication Applications and Progress To Ubiquitous Optical Networks
Nowadays, we are forced to face off, more than ever before, an exponential growth of tremendous quantities of data necessary to be local or remotely transferred within cabled or wireless communication networks. We present in this work a methodology used for a short survey and the main findings following queries in important scientific databases. As a result of this research in databases, a sort presentation of achievement related to data rates and optical link, are chronologically presented. The Optical Wireless Communication (OWC), complementary to the classical wireless transmission technologies into the radiofrequency (RF) spectrum, consists of Visible Light Communication (VLC), Optical Camera Communication (OCC), Light Fidelity (LiFi), Free Space Optics (FSO) and Infrared (IR). All these technologies and applications are briefly described here with their key characteristics. Various implementations of OWC in different areas so far, as well as the achievements reached during the last decade of intensive research, are also addressed in this work.
