The increased interest in optical wireless (OW), as a complementary solution for radio frequency (RF) wireless technology, in conjunction with the significant deployments in LED lighting technology, led to the need to achieve lighting and wireless communication simultaneously in indoor environments. Visible light communication (VLC) technology provides an opportunity and infrastructure for the high-speed low-cost wireless communication. There are still open issues in VLC such as: uplink channel, LED modulation bandwidth, and LED nonlinearity. In this paper we addressed the uplink channel implementation, being a key issue in the OW communication system in order to allow full connectivity for a terminal (duplex transmission). VLC in full duplex mode requires the usage of a hybrid technology, such as infrared optical uplink, retro-reflecting transceivers, or even RF. The solution we proposed is to create a redundant optical uplink channel, using near ultraviolet (UV) and near infrared (IR) spectra.
