Multilevel Pulse Amplitude Modulation Transmissions for Data Center Applications

Four-level pulse amplitude modulation (PAM4) is appearing as an important option for many applications that require optical communications at high data rate for short distances and/or with low complexity, such as Data Center interconnects. In this sense, this chapter aims to evaluate key features requirements for PAM4 transmissions focusing on short-reach DC applications. Therefore, we present a software to emulate PAM4 transmission at a high baud rate (56 GBd) in order to evaluate different configurations and impairments that could affect data transmission in the C-band, namely the digital signal processing (DSP) complexity, bandwidth limitation, chromatic dispersion tolerance, differential group delay (DGD) tolerance, and analog-to-digital converter (ADC) sampling requirements.

Ultrafast Electro-Optical Switches Based on Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers

This chapter presents results from enhanced semiconductor optical amplifiers based switches to be employed on high-performance applications, which demand ultrafast transition times between operational states together with reduced guard times. A discussion on devices performance is accomplished through experimental characterizations of SOAs’ nonlinear properties and its oscillatory behavior. Switching techniques and mounting schemes are presented to improve switches’ dynamic operation, resulting in rise times below 200 ps and guard times of 650 ps. This performance, when combined with an improved energy efficiency, can offer a viable technical solution for switching in high-rates applications, such as Data Centers and supercomputers.

Coherent Optical Access Networks

The constant increase in IP traffic, mainly driven by the growth of the number of connected users and the demand for bandwidth per user, has profoundly influenced the evolution of optical communication systems as a whole, including fiber-based access networks, which constitute the last mile of an optical system, directly connecting the edge IP network to the end users. This chapter is devoted to coherent optical access networks. The main intent of the chapter is to analyze different fiber-access technologies, showing the benefits and the main limitations of each of them in assessing the needs for higher bandwidth and higher number of connected users together with the concerns of minimizing the impact on the network cost and complexity. It will be showed that coherent detection offers the highest potential in terms of network efficiency, with recent studies proving its feasibility for the access scenario also in terms of complexity and power consumption.

High-Capacity Unrepeatered Optical Transmission

In the global telecommunications scenario, a great deal of interest has recently been devoted to taking the internet to country remote communities that are densely populated but in which the challenges imposed by climatic and environmental limitations are not straightforward to overcome. This chapter focuses on high-capacity unrepeatered optical transmission systems to enable high-speed connectivity in hard-to-reach areas. An optimization method for the unrepeatered optical system design is provided and detailed, followed by laboratory demonstrations showing the potential of repeaterless transmission in WDM systems with 400 Gb/s per carrier over distances greater than 400 km.

Impact of Nonlinear Effects and Mitigation on Coherent Optical Systems

This chapter presents an overview of modeling and mitigation of nonlinear effects on coherent optical systems. The Gaussian Noise (GN) is presented as an efficient method to analyze the nonlinear propagation in an uncompensated link and used to estimate the system performance. In order to compensate for the nonlinear impairments, four digital techniques were investigated: Digital Back-Propagation (DBP), DBP with coupled equations, Volterra series, and Maximum Likelihood Sequence Estimator (MLSE). Different scenarios were used to validate the algorithms. Finally, a nonlinear estimation algorithm based on Steepest Descent Algorithm (SDA) is shown and experimentally validated in an unrepeatered optical system.

High-Order Modulation Formats for Future Optical Communication Systems

Transceivers must evolve to cope with the ever-increasing traffic demand on optical networks. Some of their new features include using high-order modulation formats combined with more complex forward error correcting codes, nonlinear compensation, and probabilistic shaping. Beyond performance enhancement, power consumption is also an issue. This chapter focuses on some simulation results of using supervised phase recovery algorithm for complexity and power consumption reduction and experimental results on probabilistic shaping for performance enhancement.

Soft-Decision Forward Error Correction in Optical Communications

In order to effectively design good error-correcting codes for a given application, it is important to know how they work, how to assess the reliability of a given implementation and to be aware of the available codes and its features. In this chapter, a background about error correction is given so the reader can grasp the ideas behind error-correcting codes. Derivations about the confidence of error rate estimates are presented. These derivations turn out to be useful in the assessment of a system reliability when it is not possible to simulate enough codewords to observe a considerable number of errors. Finally, a brief historical review is presented and the authors present their view about promising codes for optical communications.

Globales Erdungssystem in urbanen Kabelnetzen

Bedingt durch die Altersstruktur vieler Kabelverteilnetze mit der damit verbundenen verminderten Isolationsfestigkeit oder durch fortschreitenden Kabelausbau ist es immer häufiger erforderlich, anstelle der Resonanz-Sternpunktserdung alternative Konzepte für die Sternpunktsbehandlung umzusetzen. Die damit verbundenen Fehlerortungskonzepte bzw. die Erhöhung der Restströme im Erdschlussfall führen jedoch aufgrund der hohen Fehlerströme zu neuen Anforderungen an die Erdungs- und Fehlerstromrückleitungs-Systeme. Lesen Sie hier über die Auswirkung von leitfähigen Strukturen auf die Stromaufteilung sowie die Potentialverhältnisse in urbanen Kabelnetzen bei stromstarken Erdschlüssen. Jetzt gratis downloaden!
