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

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 ...
