Nonlinear Frequency Division Multiplexing (NFDM) is considered when data is modulated in both parts of nonlinear Fourier spectrum: continuous spectrum and discrete spectrum. Multiplexing and demultiplexing of both spectra are explained and a time-domain detection method of discrete spectrum is introduced. The transmission of NFDM symbols is experimentally demonstrated over 1460 KM single-mode fiber with EDFA compensation. In each NFDM symbol, the continuous spectrum is modulated by 64 $times$ 0.5Gbaud OFDM symbols with 32-QAM format whereas the discrete spectrum contains four eigenvalues with the same imaginary part, each one is modulated by 8-PSK format, resulting the gross rate of 55.3 Gbps. The cross-talk between different nonlinear modes is quantified in terms of cross-correlation and the performance loss is computed in terms of mutual information when each nonlinear modes is detected individually.

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 ...
