© 2017 IEEE. The rapid development of solid-state lighting technologies has been the stimulus for visible light communications (VLC) to be the focus of enormous interest over the last decade. The key feature of simultaneous data transmission and illumination using white light-emitting diodes (LEDs) makes VLC a potential candidate for future power efficient communication networks that aim to meet the ever-increasing demands for high-speed internet services. Researchers, motivated by the success of VLC technology, have developed a number of techniques and methods to support communication systems with both high transmission speeds and spectral efficiency. Here, we provide an overview of the multi-band carrier-less amplitude and phase (m-CAP) modulation technique enabling highly spectrally efficient VLC links in bandlimited environments.
