ABSTRACT
This paper presents the power consumption analysis and optimization of a data transmission system based on a visible wavelength division multiplexing (visible WDM) scheme at 3-Gb/s over more than 50-m of step-index plastic optical fiber (SI-POF). The transmission scheme is composed of 3 channels, operating at 405, 515 and 650 nm; each one with a maximum data transmission rate of 1-Gb/s (3-Gb/s of aggregated data rate). The system performance has been tested using a real-time setup (without any post-processing or storage) which operates with bit error rate (BER) values below 1×10-6. We achieved a energy efficiency improvement greater than 75% in comparison with other recent proposals based on visible WDM over SI-POF.
