We review the most recent advanced concepts and methods employed in the cutting-edge spectrally efficient coherent fiber-optic transoceanic transmission systems, such as probabilistic shaping, adaptive digital nonlinear compensation, rate-adaptive spatially coupled low-density parity check codes, and dual-band C+L-band transmission. Building upon all these concepts and methods, we demonstrate transmission of 179 channels carrying a record net data rate of 65 Tb/s over 6600 km, achieving a spectral efficiency of 7.3 b/s/Hz, and a record average per-channel net bit rate of 363.1 Gb/s. We provide numerical and experimental results, which serve us to comment on the pertinence of the physicist's intuitive measure of performance, the signal-to-noise ratio, versus the information theorist's more accurate measure, the generalized mutual information, for the systems under study.

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 ...

  • Wu Q.

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 ...
