Abstract

We propose an optical wireless communication network architecture employing an all-optical central communication unit and optical transceiver units. The network can easily be installed when communication network facilities are partially damaged by a disaster. The network performance is simulated at 1Gbit/s, over 1km under different weather conditions.
