Recent research works have focused on the feasibility of using the multipath-transmission control protocol (MPTCP) in order to optimize network throughput and latency. In this work, we propose a novel architecture using MPTCP for a vehicular visible light communications (VLC) network to improve the performance in terms of network outage duration and throughout. Two relevant MPTCP schedulers and an MPTCP tool are selected to analyze VLC performance during the handover. The results show that the proposed system offers low-outage duration handover of 24 ms and high data throughput of 125 Mbps using "Redundant"and "Default"schedulers, respectively.
