Abstract

Light Fidelity (LiFi) is an emerging technology for future high-speed indoor wireless communications. Co-channel interference (CCI) caused by the dense deployment of LiFi access points (APs) can be effectively mitigated by using angle diversity receivers (ADRs). ADRs require signal combining where the combining weights depend on the selection of serving APs. In this paper, the AP selection (APS) strategy considering handover is studied. A novel APS scheme based on evolutionary game theory (EGT) is proposed for the LiFi network using ADRs. The performance of the proposed scheme is comprehensively analysed and compared with the APS scheme based on signal strength strategy (SSS). The result shows that, in terms of ADRs with SBC/MRC, the EGT-based APS scheme achieves more than 5%improvement in quality of service (QoS) compared with the SSS-based APS scheme. With the sub-optimum weights of maximum ratio combining (MRC) for ADRs, the EGT-MRC scheme can achieve more than 20 Mbps data rate improvement compared with LiFi systems using single photodiode (PD) receiver.
