VLC systems using commercial light emitting diode (LED) offer provision of simultaneous data transmission and illumination. However, limited modulation bandwidth and non-linear distortions are the main challenges faced by VLC designs in achieving high transmission data rates. Wavelength-division multiplexing in VLC (WDM-VLC) can improve the data rates to meet gigabit/s data standards. In this paper, we study the VLC data transmission using a commercially available red-green-blue-amber (RGBA) LED model. With quadrature amplitude modulation based discrete multi-tone (QAM-DMT) transmission, we demonstrate that proposed VLC system can achieve aggregate transmission rate of 2.1 Gb/s at bit error rate (BER) well below 2×10-3, which is typical hard-decision forward error correction (FEC) threshold.
