OCDMA Network Design

Optical Code-Division Multiple-Access (OCDMA) system simulation is crucial for optical engineers designing networks that require high levels of privacy and security. This Application Note describes how OptiSystem simulates such a network.


Analysis and Simulation on Spectral Phase-Encoded OCDMA System (subscription required)

This paper analyzes the temporal behavior of pseudo-random code and the effects on a spectral phase-encoded time-spreading OCDMA System. A spectral phase-encoded time-spreading optical code division multiple access system designed by Optiwave’s Optisystem was demonstrated.


Design and simulation of a novel phase-encoded OCDMA system

The security of optical code division multi-access (OCDMA) system was analyzed, and the results indicate the hidden trouble of security. A scheme of multi-codes to be transmitted single-user information has been proposed, and single-user eavesdropping model has been simulated.
