The use of incoherent multilevel modulation formats with high spectral efficiency (more than two bits per symbol) has been proposed in order to enable the next generation of very high-speed Time-Division Multiplexing Passive Optical Networks (TDM-PONs). Incoherent multilevel modulation is attractive for access applications since multilevel formats allow the… CONTINUE READING
