Enabling Technologies for High Spectral-efficiency Coherent Optical Communication Networks.pdf
A systematic and comprehensive book on high-capacity coherent communication networks, addressing advanced modulation, coding, and multiplexing technologies; linear and nonlinear impairments and corresponding digital mitigation strategies; and challenges and solutions for real-time implementation of high-speed digital coherent transceivers Since the revival of coherent optical communications in 2006, significant progress has been made in the field. For example, spectral efficiency of optical communication systems has been increased from 0.8 b/s/Hz to over 14.0 b/s/Hz in a single mode fiber. This progress is the result of improved technologies such as advanced modulation, digital coherent detection, coding, and digital signal processing. The first part of the book is devoted to advanced modulation, coding, and multiplexing technologies. Various linear and nonlinear impairments and their digital mitigation methods are presented, followed by impairment-tolerant and hardware-efficient symbol and carrier recovery algorithms, plus issues and challenges in real-time implementation of high-speed digital coherent transceivers. The authors reveal important progress in photonic integration and performance monitoring, and look beyond WDM (wavelength division multiplexing) to space-division-multiplexing (SDM) based technologies, which can improve fiber and network capacity. The first book to present the technological advancements that enable high spectral-efficiency and high capacity fiber-optic communication systems and networks Each chapter includes fundamental theories and directions in future research Contributions from industry and academic experts worldwide Enabling Technologies for High Spectral-efficiency Coherent Optical Communication Networks is a great resource for students, engineers, and researchers.
