In Visible Light Communication (VLC) systems, cellular networks are required for large indoor environment and built as a kind of new networks when combining the LED illumination, named Communication and Illumination Networks (CINs). The Co-Channel Interference (CCI) between adjacent cells leads to large areas of communication dead zones. Users covered by Access Points (APs) within illumination region are not necessarily covered within communication region and vice versa. In order to achieve seamless coverage, it is necessary to mitigate CCI and maximize the effective coverage of communication and illumination synchronously.
