A packet-switched frequency-hopping multiple-access (FO-FHMA) communication system based on bus topology is proposed and investigated. In this arrangement, access to the optical medium for the network subscribers is provided via frequency-hopping (FH). The proposed FH technique in this analysis takes advantage of the Reed-Solomon (RS) codes to encode information packets and, consequently, to combat possible burst errors at the receiver. At user locations, encoded subpackets are frequency-hopped with the aid of a phase modulator, using a preassigned FH pattern for transmission over the optical medium. At the receiver site, a balanced phase discriminator/detection device followed by a frequency-dehopping receiver is used to recover the desired information. An alternative receiver structure, where the received signal is heterodyned prior to dehopping, is also proposed. The implications of this coherent detection are consequently discussed. Performance measures in terms of throughput and probability of incorrect decoding for chip synchronous model with asynchronous transmission characteristic in the absence of side information are obtained to assess the viability of the proposed packet-switched fiber-optic multiple-access communication system. Numerical results are presented when short RS codes are utilized as FH assignment codes
