The detection characteristics of an indoor-optical communication system, which utilizes infrared radiation as carrier has been explored and enhanced for telemedicine, and wireless local area network applications. The novelty of the presented technique consists in the fact that multipath dispersion can be reduced under controlled polarization link setup. The design of such a network is based on the specifications set by the IEEE 802.11 standard. Significant noise reduction has been achieved by utilizing wavelet transform processing algorithms.
