We review digital-to-analog and analog-to-digital converters (DACs and ADCs), as well as digital signal processing (DSP) functions for software defined optical modems using rich modulation formats. These next generation optical transceivers will enable bit rates from 100 Gb/s to 400 Gb/s and 1 Tb/s.
A new family of Nyquist pulses for coherent optical single carrier systems is introduced and is shown to increase the nonlinearity tolerance of dual-polarization (DP)-QPSK and DP-16-QAM systems. Numerical investigations for a single-channel 28 Gbaud DP-16-QAM long-haul system without optical dispersion compensation indicate that the proposed pulse can(More)
Perturbation based nonlinearity pre-compensation has been performed for a 128 Gbit/s single-carrier dual-polarization 16-ary quadrature-amplitude-modulation (DP 16-QAM) signal. Without any performance degradation, a complexity reduction factor of 6.8 has been demonstrated for a transmission distance of 3600 km by combining symmetric electronic dispersion(More)
In this paper, we discuss building blocks that enable the exploitation of optical capacities beyond 100 Gb∕s. Optical networks will benefit from more flexibility and agility in their network elements, especially from coherent transceivers. To achieve capacities of 400 Gb∕s and more, coherent transceivers will operate at higher symbol rates. This will be(More)
