We have introduced a low cost backbone network architecture for 1-Tb/s superchannel transmission. To meet huge reach requirements in case of link failure we applied improved sensitivity probabilistic shaped constellations in a flex transponder application. For all distances of working paths up to 1000 km we successfully demonstrated 1-Tb/s transmission with spectral efficiencies up to 6.7 Gb/s/Hz. For protection path at higest distances around 2000 km the rate has been adjusted down to 800 km, which is inline with the protection concept. This rate is limited due to spectral efficiency constraints given by the 400 GHz slicing concept, the transmission format itself is capable to go even 2000 km at terabit capacities.

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 ...
