AbstractOptical wireless communications (OWC) is a potential solution for coping with the mismatch between the users growing demand for higher data-rates and the wireless network capabilities. In this paper, a multi-user OWC scenario is studied from an in formation-theoretic perspective. The studied network consists of two users communicating simultaneously with one access point using OWC, thus establishing an optical uplink channel. The capacity of this network is an important metric which reflects the highest possible communication rates that can be achieved over this channel. Capacity outer and inner bounds are derived, and are shown to be fairly tight in the high signal-to-noise ratio regime. © 2016 IEEE.
