the theoretical limit. We study the effects of finite analog-to-digital converter resolution, laser frequency offset, laser phase noise, and narrowband optical filtering. Our experiments on a 25-GHz WDM grid (4.1-b/s/Hz spectral efficiency) reveal a 1-dB penalty after 7 passes though reconfigurable optical add/drop multi-plexers (ROADMs) and an achievable(More)
An empirical phase noise channel model suitable for performance evaluation of high spectrally efficient modulations in 100G long-haul coherent optical transmission systems using polarization-division multiplexed and wavelength-division multiplexing channels is presented. The derivation of the model is worked out by exploiting the similarity between the(More)
A new lower bound below the information rate transferred through the Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) channel affected by discrete-time multiplicative Wiener's phase noise is proposed in the paper. The proposed lower bound is based on the Kalman approach to data-aided carrier phase recovery, and is less computationally demanding than known methods based(More)
—The use of trellis-coded modulation (TCM) in combination with an outer block code is considered for next-generation 100-Gb/s optical transmission systems. Two block codes are employed as an outer code: a 16 times interleaved byte-oriented (255,239) Reed Solomon (RS) code and a code consisting of two interleaved extended three-error correcting Bose(More)

Starting from the definition of mutual information, one promptly realizes that the probabilities inferred by Bayesian tracking can be used to compute the Shannon information between the state and the measurement of a dynamic system. In the Gaussian and linear case, the information rate can be evaluated from the probabilities computed by the Kalman filter.(More)
—The hybrid decision feedback equalizer (DFE) is a combined time-frequency domain implementation of the conventional time-domain DFE that is able to provide a good trade-off between performance and computational complexity in single carrier transmission over severely frequency-selective channels. In the hybrid DFE the implementation of the feedforward(More)
