The Information Society Technologies—all-optical LAbel SwApping employing optical logic Gates in NEtwork nodes (IST-LASAGNE) project aims at designing and implementing the first, modular, scalable, and truly all-optical photonic router capable of operating at 40 Gb/s. The results of the first project year are presented in this paper, with emphasis on the(More)
Short range optical data links are experiencing bandwidth limitations making it very challenging to cope with the growing data transmission capacity demands. Parallel optics appears as a valid short-term solution. It is, however, not a viable solution in the long-term because of its complex optical packaging. Therefore, increasing effort is now put into the(More)
A novel system concept is presented to transport microwave signals over an in-house multimode graded-index polymer optical fiber network, in order to feed the radio access points in high-capacity wireless LANs. By employing optical frequency multiplying, the network's intrinsically limited bandwidth is overcome. The feasibility of this concept to carry data(More)
The energy efficiency in telecommunication networks is gaining more relevance as the Internet traffic is growing. The introduction of OFDM and dynamic operation opens new horizons in the operation of optical networks, improving the network flexibility and its efficiency. In this paper, we compare the performance in terms of energy efficiency of a(More)
The error performance of a preamplified, direct detection receiver with an optical filter of the Lorentzian type is studied. The analysis takes into account the influence of the optical intersymbol interference (ISI). A closed-form expression of the moment generating function (MGF) of the decision variable is derived. Error probabilities are evaluated from(More)
QAM modulation utilizing subcarrier frequency lower than the symbol rate is both theoretically and experimentally investigated. High spectral efficiency and concentration of power in low frequencies make sub-cycle QAM signals attractive for optical fiber links with direct modulated light sources. Real-time generated 10-Gbps 4-level QAM signal in a 7.5-GHz(More)
In this paper, we present a recursive formula for the moments of phase noise in communication systems. The phase noise is modeled using continuous Brownian motion. The recursion is simple and valid for an arbitrary initial phase value. The moments obtained by the recursion are used to calculate approximations to the probability density function of the phase(More)
