Due to the rapid increase in network traffic in the last few years, many telecommunication operators have started transitions to 100-Gb/s optical networks and beyond. However, high-speed optical networks need more efficient forward error correction (FEC) codes to deal with optical impairments, such as uncompensated chromatic dispersion, polarization mode dispersion, and nonlinear effects, and keep the bit error rate (BER) at long distances sufficiently low. To address these issues, new FEC… CONTINUE READING
