Supporting the ever-increasing data-center-interconnect (DCI) traffic in a cost effective manner is a great challenge, which requires innovative transmission and digital signal processing (DSP) techniques. Recently, single side-band (SSB) direct-detection (DD) transmissions have been actively considered for data rate beyond 100 Gb/s per channel and distance of hundreds of kilometers due to its capability of electronic chromatic dispersion (EDC) compensation. In addition, several effective DSP techniques for compensating signal-signal beating interference (SSBI) due to the squared-law detection of the photodiode (PD) have been intensively investigated, such as Kramers-Knonig (KK) and iterative SSBI cancellation schemes, showing promising results at data rate over 200 Gb/s and distance beyond 100 km. In this paper, we demonstrate that high-performance, low-complexity SSB DD transmissions could be achieved by generating a digital carrier (virtual carrier) together with the complex information-bearing signal at the transmitter using only two digital-to-analog converters (DACs). Combining this transmission technique with either the KK field reconstruction or a two-stage SSBI cancellation scheme at the receiver, 8x215Gbps net-data-rate WDM signals have been transmitted over a record span length of 200 km at 1550 nm

  • 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 ...
