Coherent detection and digital signal processing have led to a new and exciting paradigm in optical fiber communications, as they provide a substantial improvement in transport system capacity and functionality. Optical networking, and in particular the use of super-channel wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) technology, is the ideal way to efficiently transport extremely large amounts of data over long-haul terrestrial and subsea networks.

Large-scale photonic integration, in which hundreds of photonic functions, including lasers, modulators, waveguides and others are combined into large-scale photonic integrated circuits, provides significant flexibility and efficiency benefits when integrated into WDM transport systems.

In parallel, electronic function integration has also been advancing as complementary metal-oxide semiconductor technology continues to improve. Processing functionality (and hence complexity) has grown substantially in application-specific integrated circuits, thereby allowing higher order modulation formats and enhanced coherent detection.

With these new developments in electronics and photonics, the industry can now introduce the next generation of coherent optical capabilities such as Nyquist subcarriers, soft-decision forward error correction (SD-FEC) gain sharing, matrix-enhanced phase shift keying, high-gain SD-FEC and flexible channel spacing, enabling operators to considerably improve their fiber capacity-reach performance.

What You Will Learn/Seminar Objectives
  • Operational scale challenges impacting network operators as bandwidth demand continues to grow
  • Next-generation optical transport technologies that combine advanced photonics and electronics, to harness maximum capacity and reach from long-haul, terrestrial and subsea networks
Speakers:
Scott Jackson, Vice President, Subsea Business Group, Infinera
Matthew Mitchell, Vice President, Optical Systems Architecture, Infinera
