We demonstrate a 56 GBd PAM-4 compact transmitter module integrating in InP a DFB laser and EAM modulator, which exhibits 50 GHz bandwidth, >13 dB extinction ratio and up to 1.5 mW output power. Successful amplifier free 2-km 112-Gb/s transmission is performed using low complexity 3 taps equalization. We also study the trade-off between receiver bandwidth, equalizer length and performance, showing that successfully signal recovery can be achieved with bandwidths as low as 18 GHz when increasing the equalizer length.

A Cloud Native Approach to 5G Network Slicing

  • Francini A.
  • Miller R.
  • Sharma S.

5G networks will have to support a set of very diverse and often extreme requirements. Network slicing offers an effective way to unlock the full potential of 5G networks and meet those requirements on a shared network infrastructure. This paper presents a cloud native approach to network slicing. The cloud ...

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
