Experimental Demonstration of A Low-Complexity Phase Noise Compensation for CO-OFDM Systems

IEEE In this letter, a low-complexity phase noise compensation scheme based on Kalman filtering theory is experimentally demonstrated for coherent optical orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (CO-OFDM) transmissions. The proposed scheme can operate in two modes, pilot-aided mode and blind mode, resulting in a variety of phase noise tracking configurations upon particular transmission scenario. At a bit-error-rate of 3.8 × 10-3 and for 40 GBaud 16QAM 64 subcarriers CO-OFDM systems, the proposed method operating in the pilot-aided mode reduces the pilot overhead by a factor of two in comparison with the conventional pilot-aided scheme, while in the blind mode, our scheme’s complexity is far superior to one of the state-of-the-art computational efficient decision-direct-free blind approach by a factor of twenty.

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 ...
