This paper provides experimental results for a multi-user visible light communications system using multi-band carrier-less amplitude and phase (m-CAP) modulation scheme. We optimize the system performance by adapting pulse shaping filter parameters, subcarrier spacing and allocating different baud rates to individual sub-bands called allocated m-CAP (Am-CAP). We show that a maximal system data rate of ∼468 Mb/s for four users can be supported while gaining higher flexibility for optimization and the same or lower computational complexity compared with the conventional m-CAP scheme.
