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.

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 ...
