To provide Quality of Service (QoS) and data rate differentiation, we investigate in this paper a 2 dimensional optical code division multiple access (OCDMA) technique. A 2D multi-weight coding scheme with parallel mapping technique is developed. The system enhancement is assessed thanks to the use of Forward Error Correction (FEC) based on Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) codes. In order to have an efficient correction power, we develop an adaptation of the LDPC decoding algorithm to the specific multiple access interference distribution in a multimedia OCDMA network. The proposed network permits a high number of users to communicate with high data rates adapted to a multimedia transmission (voice, data and video) with corresponding QoS (10-3, 10-6, 10-9).
