Potential of WDM packets

  • Chiaroni D.
  • Uscumlic B.

The need for ultra-low latencies fronthaul/backhaul solutions for the 5G as well as the need for low energy consumption technologies in a cost-effective way push constructors of equipment to propose disruptive approaches offering new KPIs for ICT. This paper will then draw the potential of WDM packets in terms of energy consumption and cost gains when compared to classical approaches. The study will be completed with additional studies showing that this technology has the potential to efficiently reduce the end-to-end latency of networks. This work is partly funded by the ANR N-GREEN project.

Fair Dynamic Spectrum Management for QRD-Based Precoding with User Encoding Ordering in Downstream G.fast Transmission

In next generation DSL networks such as G.fast, employing discrete multi-tone transmission in high frequencies up to 212 MHz, the crosstalk among lines reaches very high levels. To precompensate the crosstalk in downstream transmission, QRD-based precoding has been proposed as a near-optimal dynamic spectrum management (DSM) technique. However, the performance ...

Practical Mitigation of Passive Intermodulation in Microstrip Circuits

This paper presents new experimental evidence and a novel practical approach for mitigation of passive intermodulation (PIM) in microstrip circuits fabricated on commercial printed circuit board laminates. The mechanisms of distributed PIM in microstrip circuits are reviewed and a phenomenology of PIM generation due to locally enhanced electromagnetic fields at ...

Efficient Cooperative HARQ for Multi-Source Multi-Relay Wireless Networks

In this paper, we compare the performance of three different cooperative Hybrid Automatic Repeat reQuest (HARQ) protocols for slow-fading half-duplex orthogonal multiple access multiple relay channel. Channel State Information (CSI) is available at the receiving side of each link only. Time Division Multiplexing is assumed, where each orthogonal transmission occurs ...
