An optical RF feeding system for wireless access is proposed, in which the radio access points are distinguished by means of coherence multiplexing (CM). CM is a rather unknown and potentially inexpensive optical code division multiple access technique, which is particularly suitable for relatively short-range applications with moderate transmission bandwidth requirements. Subcarrier multiplexing (SCM) can possibly be used on top of CM, either as single-channel or multichannel SCM. The performances of the resulting distribution networks are analyzed, incorporating the effect of chromatic dispersion, optical beat noise, shot noise, thermal noise, and-in the case of multichannel SCM-intermodulation distortion. The results of the analyses are illustrated by using numerical examples, based on the IEEE 802.11b standard for wireless LAN.
