All-optical OFDM implementation, including FFT algorithm

Leading beneficiary: KIT

Other participants (industrial affiliates): Agilent (Germany), Finisar (Israel), Micram Microelectronic GmbH, Time-Bandwidth Products (Switzerland), Centellax, Alcatel-Lucent (Germany) and Xilinx

KIT collaborates with several industrial partners, namely , to achieve a record-breaking transmission capacity modulated onto the output of a single laser source.

Nyquist-WDM based Tbit/s Superchannel transmission

Leading beneficiary: POLITO

Other participants: HHI and industrial affiliates (OCLARO Corp., CISCO Photonics, TELEOPTIX, FASTWEB s.p.a., AVANEX Corp.)

The long-haul reach of a 1Tb/s superchannel comprising 10x100Gb/s PM-QPSK modulated carriers was investigated. The experiments were carried out over the operator FASTWEB’s installed cable plant in the city of Turin, Italy, which consists of uncompensated Standard-Single Mode Fibre (SSMF) with EDFA in-line amplification.

Development of DSP algorithms and testing in a real-time test environment

Leading beneficiary: SSSUP 

Other participants: Ericsson Italy (industrial affiliate)

An experimental test-bed for 100 Gb/s QAM transmission system with coherent receiver was set up. The activity included theoretical studies and implementation of sophisticated processing techniques for mitigation of linear and nonlinear propagation impairments, local oscillator phase noise and digital phase locked loop impairments.
