We experimentally demonstrate the use of full-field electronic dispersion compensation (EDC) to achieve a bit error rate of 5times10- 5 at 22.3 dB optical signal-to-noise ratio for single-channel 10 Gbit/s on-off keyed signal after transmission over 496 km field-installed single-mode fibre with an amplifier spacing of 124 km. This performance is achieved by designing the EDC so as to avoid electronic amplification of the noise content of the signal during full-field reconstruction. We also… CONTINUE READING
