Executive Summary

Though it promises high bandwidths, the optical medium is not popular in local area networks. This is because current optical networks do not offer the ease of use and setup that an uncoordinated multiple access network such as Ethernet offers. This paper proposes a novel nonlinear trellis code designed for multiple accesses among uncoordinated nodes in an optical communications system. This code has been shown to have an efficiency of 30%.
