Modulation Scheme Dramatically Increases Capacity, Range of Next-Generation Fibers

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 17, 2015 — A new phase-modulation (PM) scheme may have found the “sweet spot” for long-distance communications over next-generation optical fibers. Infinera Corp. of California and BICS SA/NV of Belgium recently completed an extended laboratory trial of three PM schemes for transmission over OFS Terawave large-area/low-loss (LA/LL) optical fiber, which is optimized for terrestrial cables. The results show the dramatic improvement in optical reach and capacity that can be expected as these new fibers are deployed, Infinera said. One submarine trial showed that 8 quadrature...Read full article
