The growing demand for high speed indoor wireless connectivity is among the driving forces for data transmission based on visible-light communications (VLC). For relatively large-space indoor scenarios, the development of appropriate spectrally-efficient multiple-access (MA) techniques enables efficient handling of multiple users, in particular, in dealing with the limited modulation bandwidth of the light-emitting diodes. In this paper, we present a comparative study between different MA techniques proposed in the recent literature for VLC networks. The most appropriate schemes for large-scale network deployments are further investigated in different scenarios to contrast their performance in terms of the achievable throughput.
