In this paper, we consider the bacterial point-to-point and multiple-access molecular communications with ligand-receptors. For the point-to-point communication, we investigate common signaling methods, namely the Level Scenario (LS), which uses one type of a molecule with different concentration levels, and the Type Scenario (TS), which employs multiple types of molecules with a single concentration level. We investigate the trade-offs between the two scenarios from the capacity point of view. We derive an upper bound on the capacity using a Binomial Channel (BIC) model and the symmetrized Kullback-Leibler (KL) divergence. A lower bound is also derived when the...
