Next-Generation Ultra-High-Speed DWDM Transport

This paper provides an overview on technologies for ultra-high-speed DWDM transport beyond 100 Gb/s per channel. Multi-level and multi-carrier modulation techniques are key for achieving higher channel bit rates. Any increase in spectral efficiency over 100 Gb/s per channel on a 50 GHz channel grid will decrease the attainable maximum unregenerated reach.
