This paper reports on a simulation-based investigation of an optical wireless system using fiber-bundle based transmitters and receivers. The simulation incorporates both beam propagation theory and experimental data from evaluations of the individual components. The coverage area at the receiver is evaluated as a function of transmitter power, link length, misalignment, and the number of transmitter fibers employed. An optimum coverage area is achievable with proper selection of transmitter parameters for a given link length. Trade-offs between the number of fibers employed and the transmitter power are explored.
