INVERSE MULTIPLEXING IN OPTICAL TRANSPORT NETWORKS WITH THE SUPPORT OF SONET / SDH VIRTUAL CONCATENATION

  • Zhu K

Emerging SONET/SDH techniques enable a high-bandwidth connection to be carried by multiple diversely-routed, low-speed connections. We investigate the benefits of such an inverse-multiplexing mechanism in optical networks and propose several efficient diverse-routing algorithms.

  • Dischler R.
  • Idler W.
  • Klekamp A.
  • Lazaro J.

Various noise statistics on simulation have been compared with experimental data on 43 Gb/s amplitude shift keying (ASK) and differential phase shift keying (DPSK) formats for chromatic dispersion (CD) and polarisation mode dispersion (PMD) tolerances and nonlinear threshold (NLT). Best agreement is found by Gaussian noise statistics plus inter-symbol-interference.
