Development of a Digital Signal Processing Algorithm for Waveform Compensation in High Speed Fiber-Optic Transmissions of over 100 Gbps by FUJITSU
Fujitsu has made announcement on development of a digital signal processing algorithm capable of compensating the waveform distortion in signals in long-haul fiber optic transmissions that can transmit data at a rate of more than 100 Gbps per wavelength. At the same time has reduced the size of the required circuitry by around 70%. The new system can offer a lower cost of transmitting data in comparison to currently available 10 Gbps systems linking together carrier trunk lines with major datacenters.
The new system was tested to send 112 Gbps signal over 1,200 km. The reduced circuitry will make it possible to commercialize the technology using 28nm CMOS processing technology. The new technology will provide the ability of accessing HD 3D video as well as remote medicine technologies and advanced distance learning.
