We demonstrate the generation and detection of single-polarization 56-GBaud PAM-8 and PAM-4 signals using intensity modulation and direct detection leveraging a novel high-speed high-output swing selector power DAC fabricated in InP DHBT which does not require an external driver. Considering 7% overhead hard-decision forward error control, we validate our design by transmitting the 150 Gbit/s net-data rate signal based on PAM-8 over 2 km and 100 Gbit/s signal based on PAM-4 over 4 km of standard single mode fiber without optical amplification. We complement the results by taking advantage of the high bandwidth of the selector power DAC to increase the PAM-4 symbol rate to 64 GBaud and we compare it with the results at 56 GBaud at constant information rate. We use the concept of mutual information (MI) to assess which Baud rate can achieve best sensitivity as a function of transmission distance.

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 ...
