High-bandwidth services require faster long-haul transport networks. Meanwhile operators are not ready to make evolve significantly their fibre infrastructure based on PMD-limited G.652 fibre while they would like to upgrade the already deployed WDM systems by replacing progressively 10 Gbps wavelengths by 40 and 100 Gbps channels. Challenges of 40/100 Gbps(More)
Increase in transmission symbol-rate as well as order of quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) is identified as the most economical way to reduce cost per transmitted bit. In particular, next generation transponders aim at supporting data-rates up to 1 Tb/s employing superchannels due to electrical components' bandwidth limitations. Furthermore, the(More)
In this paper, we present an original work on sub-wavelength optical switching performed over a coherent multi-band orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (MB-OFDM) super-channel operating at 100 Gbps. After having demonstrated that dual-polarization MB-OFDM (DP-MB-OFDM) is as efficient as single-carrier dual-polarization quaternary phase shift keying(More)
We demonstrate a record 38.4Tb/s 64QAM C-band transmission over 762km of field deployed SSMF fiber, connecting Lyon and Marseille, France, employing hybrid EDFA-Raman amplification and achieve a spectral efficiency of 8b/s/Hz. Furthermore, we demonstrate, for the first time to our knowledge, flexi-rate transmission over the same commercial link, using(More)
We present the experimental implementation of an all-optical ROADM scheme for routing of an individual subchannel within an all-optical OFDM superchannel. The different functions required of optical node were demonstrated using interferometric technique with the extraction, drop, and addition of individual subchannel in a ten subchannels optically(More)
We experimentally demonstrate uncompensated error-free transmission of 400 Gbps real-time coherent DP-16QAM with Nyquist filtering (5.33 bit/s/Hz) over 500 km (resp. 300 km) of G.652 (resp. G.655) fibre using purely EDFA amplification and taking into account 2 dB margins.
Duobinary formats are today considered as being one of the most promising cost-effective solutions for the deployment of 40 Gb/s technology with direct detection on existing 10 Gb/s WDM long-haul (metropolitan and core) transmission infrastructures. Various methods for generating duobinary formats have been developed in the past few years but to our(More)
In this paper, we present a novel networking technique based on optical Multi-Band Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (MB-OFDM). We highlight the interesting features of the solution with respect to existing ones (fully opaque optical networks and transparent networks) for optical metro and core networks. We show that under certain traffic condition(More)
Adaptive blind equalization based on modulus algorithm is very efficient to carry out polarization separation and inter-symbol interference compensation in a coherent dual-polarization quaternary-phase-shift-keying transmission system. Its performance is, however, very poor when coherent dual-polarization binary-phase-shift-keying (BPSK) modulation is(More)
Telecommunication carriers have to estimate the Raman parameters of the fibers installed on their optical transport networks in order to facilitate the design of the next generation of high bit-rate Raman amplified-based transmission systems. This paper reports a very complete characterization of the most popular modern transmission fibers in terms of Raman(More)
