Abstract
In this paper we present an implementation of a Long-Term Evolution (LTE) signal transmission using a visible light communications (VLC) setup. VLC is a novel technology that employs off-the-shelf LED lamps to offer high-speed wireless communication, specially at indoor environments, where reportedly the majority of wireless data traffic takes place. By using the optical wireless channel, we manage to transmit downlink LTE signals in distances of up to 3 m, while keeping an EVM lower than the limit compliant.
