In this paper, we propose a new peak-to-average power ratio reduction technique based on a constant envelope orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (CE-OFDM) approach to mitigate fiber induced nonlinearities in direct-detection optical OFDM (DDO-OFDM) systems. Simulation results show that the proposed 10 Gbps DDO-CE-OFDM system using 16-quadrature(More)
A novel method is presented to design the configuration of pumping lasers of Raman amplifiers using a multi-objective particle swarm optimizer. The goal is to obtain the pump laser wavelengths and powers that maximize the amplifier on-off gain, while maintaining the flatness of the gain over the used bandwidth. We used an algorithm called Multiple Objective(More)
In order to reduce the cost for delivering the ever increasing broadband services, network providers need to simplify their network architectures and have a better control of the bandwidth. In this article, we propose a simple and cost-effective bandwidth scalable passive optical network (PON) based on orthogonal frequency division multiplexing(More)
In this paper, we propose a hybrid methodology based on Graph-Coloring and Genetic Algorithm (GA) to solve the Wavelength Assignment (WA) problem in optical networks, impaired by physical layer effects. Our proposal was developed for a static scenario where the physical topology and traffic matrix are known a priori. First, we used fixed (More)
This paper proposes a new design methodology for discrete multi-pumped Raman amplifier. In a multi-objective optimization scenario, in a first step the whole solution-space is inspected by a CW analytical formulation. Then, the most promising solutions are fully investigated by a rigorous numerical treatment and the Raman amplification performance is thus(More)
A field trial of power line communication (PLC) with 200 Mpbs modems in a low voltage test grid is presented in this paper. Throughput and adaptivity to physical channel characteristics are some of the investigated functionalities in order to evaluate their appliance in medium voltage (MV) levels for onshore oil & gas industries. Experimental results(More)
The information systems that support Electronic Commerce on the Internet are becoming more common and complex. The complexity of these systems increases the need for new models with different degrees of abstraction in order to simplify the visualization of different aspects of the structure, constraints and operation of the software. In this paper we(More)
