In this communication we consider the use of PPM based modulation methods, such as the hybrid modulation method called Amplitude and Pulse-Position Modulation (APPM) and Overlapping Pulse-Position Modulation (OPPM), to improve the performance of Infrared WLAN's. The bandwidth eficiency expressions of these modulation schemes are presented and compared against the one of Pulse-Position Modulation (PPM), which allows to conclude that both APPM and OPPM can be used to improve the performance of
