We experimentally demonstrate a bit-rate of 47.4 Gb/s over 100 m of perfluorinated multimode graded-index plastic optical fiber (GI-POF) by exploiting discrete multitone (DMT) modulation with rate-adaptive bit-loading. The maximum achieved aggregate bit rate is 51.8 Gb/s including DMT transmission overhead (cyclic prefix and preambles) and the standard of 7% of forward-error-correction (FEC) overhead. This is achieved over an intensity-modulated direct-detection (IM-DD) link using a directly-modulated DFB laser (1300-nm) and a multimode fiber-coupled photodetector with a large diameter of 25-??m. The bandwidth requirement is only 12 GHz due to the use of spectral-efficient modulation formats of up to 64-QAM.
