A Hybrid Radio Frequency and Broadcast Visible Light Communication System

Wireless network data consumption is experiencing drastic increases due to growing demands of mobile services and applications. Deployed networks using Radio Frequency (RF) communications are characterized by a shared medium, limited available spectrum and limited ability to scale with increasing demand. Directional communications, including Visible Light Communications (VLC), can limit contention in controlled environments and provide scalability through spatial reuse of the medium. This solution can provide massive aggregate data capacity in indoor scenarios if properly distributed.
