We demonstrate 5Tb/s bidirectional transmission (2.5Tb/s in each direction) over 2.2km of OM2 fiber using selective excitation of 4 mode groups, WDM multiplexing and direct detection. We use 20 wavelengths per mode group each wavelength is modulated using discrete multitone scheme with 1024 subcarriers using external Lithium Niobate Mach-Zehnder modulator (MZM). A minimum bit rate of 68.8Gb/s per channel is obtained for a Q2 factor of 8.5dB using a 65Gs/s digital to analog converter (DAC). We achieve same bit rate over 4.4km using 88Gs/ DAC. We also use electro-absorption modulated laser (EML) with a 3-dB bandwidth of 18GHz in the same mode group division transmission. We measured a 1dB power penalty with the EML compare to (MZM). We transmit a channel bit rate of 68.5Gb/ over 2.2km of OM2 fiber with the EML for the worst mode. Therefore, we demonstrate the transmission of the same throughput over multimode fiber using a low cost EML instead of external MZM.

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 ...
