We study the achievable rates of submarine fiber systems in the high-dimensional design space of variables including span length, launch power, number of spatial channels, and power feed current. We identify the regimes in which nonlinearities or power feed equipment constraints become dominant, and demonstrate that optimized system design evolves toward… CONTINUE READING
