Optical network architectures with elastic bandwidth provisioning are a very promising approach for next generation optical networks. Such elastic optical networks will enable efficient resource utilization and flexible sub-wavelength and super-channel connection provisioning to support heterogeneous and immense bandwidth demands. In this paper, we focus on… (More)
In this paper we address the problem of the Radio-over-Fiber (RoF) network design. In particular, we focus on a DWDM RoF network for which we formulate a maximal service RoF channel allocation (MSCA) problem. Although MSCA is a difficult problem, still it can be resolved for the network instances of some hundred of access points and users.
We introduce a mixed-integer optimization model for two-layer IP-over-Flexgrid networks, and present a cost study performed using the CPLEX package for the introduced model. The study concerns a generic German network with 12 nodes and 20 links in the optical layer, and a set of six IP traffic matrices with increasing demand volumes. The optimization… (More)
The CMS regional calorimeter trigger system detects signatures of electrons/photons, taus, jets, and missing and total transverse energy in a deadtimeless pipelined architecture. This system contains 20 crates of custom-built electronics. Much of the processing in this system is performed by five types of 160 MHz digital ASICs. These ASICs have been… (More)
In this paper we address the problem of the impairments in Radio-over-Fiber (RoF) transmission which occur in an optical link in a millimeter-wave (mm-wave) band, e.g. for 60 GHz carrier frequency. We carry out some basic relations between DSB, SSB and OSC modulation formats and than compare duobinary and RZ modulation by numerical simulations.
Closed-form analytical expressions for nonlinear noise power FWM density Ifwm have been derived for WDM systems as a function of the optical fiber and system properties (i.e. fiber attenuation, dispersion, nonlinearity, power spectral density, and spectral efficiency).
We report computer simulation results and some experimental data of polarization mode dispersion (PMD) measurements using the fixed analyzer method in which accuracy was improved by means of averaging of measurements ensemble with random input state of polarisation, and by repeated smoothing of measured data, with variable parameter controlling length of… (More)
Scilab toolbox for fiber optic communication systems simulation was developed, named SSS. The features of SSS simulator are presented by including examples of program code with short comments explaining the key instructions, followed by graphical presentation of simulation results. Scilab is an open-source alternative of Matlab and combined with SSS toolbox… (More)
Closed-form analytical expressions for nonlinear noise power FWM density (I<sub>FWM</sub>) have been derived for Nyquist WDM systems as a function of the optical fiber and system parameters (i.e. dispersion, nonlinearity, power spectral density, and spectral efficiency) in case of near-zero fiber attenuation.
