Soft-decision-based forward error correction (FEC) and its practical implementation for 100 Gb/s transport systems are discussed. In applying soft-decision FEC to a digital coherent transponder, we address the configuration of the frame structure of the FEC. For dual-polarized multilevel modulation formats, the keys are having the FEC frames constructed(More)
The concatenation of low-density parity-check and Reed-Solomon codes for forward error correction has been experimentally demonstrated for the first time in this letter. Using a 2-bit soft-decision large-scale integration and high-speed field-programmable gate arrays, a net coding gain of 9.0 dB was achieved with 20.5% redundancy with four iterative(More)
Electronic pre-equalization for 43 Gb/s DQPSK has been demonstrated for the first time. Waveform distortion caused by bandwidth narrowing to 18.1 GHz by cascaded 10 Gb/s ROADMs has been adequately pre-equalized by a SiGe-BiCMOS LSI with 6-bit, 43 GS/s digital-to-analog converters.
We investigated the use of per-channel rate-adaptive FEC for superchannels, in the presence of fiber nonlinearity, inter-channel interference, and power variations. We found 3~4% peak capacity and ~ 0.3dB nonlinear power threshold increase in most cases compared to the conventional method.
Electronic pre-equalization of chromatic dispersion for 43 Gb/s DQPSK has been demonstrated employing a developed test chip. The chip enables the BER in fibre with 2450 ps/nm of dispersion to be improved to 7.6E-05 without an optical dispersion compensator.
We propose to use Han-Kobayashi (HK) coding and dirty-paper coding (DPC) to cope with inter-carrier interference (ICI) in dual-carrier transmissions. We show the considerable benefit of those methods to increase throughput in presence of strong ICI for dense carrier spacing.
