    Optical networks are undergoing significant changes, fueled by the exponential growth of traffic due to multimedia services and by the increased uncertainty in predicting the sources of this traffic due to the ever changing models of content providers over the Internet. The change has already begun: simple on-off modulation of signals, which was adequate for bit rates up to 10 Gb/s, has given way ... View full abstract»

    As traffic demands continue to grow, supporting data rates beyond 100 Gb/s will be required to increase optical channel capacity and support higher-rate client interfaces. Advanced modulation formats that adapt to optimize spectral efficiency over a range of channel signal-tonoise ratio conditions are required. Channels can be constructed by varying parameters such as symbol rate, bits per symbol,... View full abstract»

    Optical fibers have often been considered to offer effectively infinite capacity to support the rapid traffic growth essential to our information society. However, as demand has grown and technology has developed, we have begun to realize that there is a fundamental limit to fiber capacity of ~ 100 Tb/s per fiber for systems based on conventional single-core single-mode optical fiber as the transm...

    We overview the requirements and the enabling technologies for optical transmission systems up to 100 Gb/s and beyond. Polarization- division multiplexed quadrature phase shift keying with digital coherent detection, and fast recovery in optical channel rerouting are key technologies for 100-Gb/s long-haul systems and beyond. We review test results of a realtime 80-channel wavelength-division mult... View full abstract»

    100 Gb/s per channel optical communication is the natural next step for undersea DWDM optical communications. In this article we review some of the key advanced technologies that can have high impact on the future 100Gb/s undersea optical communications, and further present 100 Gb/s optical DWDM transmission over 10,000 km optical fibers.

    Major client optics applications are the high-density data center, structured data center, carrier central office, general data center, and metro inter data center, corresponding to link reaches from 100 m to 40 km. First-generation 100G multimode fiber and single-mode fiber client optics are based on 10 × 10G electrical lane and 10 × 10G or 4 × 25G optical lane architectures.... View full abstract»

    Five criteria that are usually considered by IEEE standards committees for development of next generation standards are broad market potential, distinct identity, and compatibility, as well as technical and economic feasibility. We consider these criteria separately and show that the new emerging large-volume markets loosely defined as Computercom will demand new standards and new technologies. We... View full abstract»

    LTE-Advanced extends the capabilities originally developed in LTE within the 3GPP. Carrier aggregationis the most significant, albeit complex, improvement provided by LTE-Advanced. Bandwidths from various portions of the spectrum are logically concatenated resulting in a virtual block of a much larger band, enabling increased data throughput. Additionally, enhancements to MIMO antenna techniques i... View full abstract»
