By offering random access to the entire bandwidth, O-CDMA combines the large bandwidth provided by fiber-optic systems with the flexibility offered by the CDMA technique, making it a promising technology for future multiple-access networks. In addition to offering random access to the entire bandwidth, O-CDMA offer other advantages like simplified network control, increased security and fair bandwidth sharing and management. This paper presents the initial work done on the design and development of innovative hardware and coding algorithms for such systems.
