As we Approach Shannon Limit, How do we Precisely Assess the Performance of Coherent Transponders for Field Deployment?


Steve Grubb, Facebook Inc., USA; Georg Mohs, TE SubCom, USA; Priyanth Mehta, Ciena, Canada


Topics to cover:

  1. How close will we be able to  approach Shannon limit in the field?
  2. How do we precisely assess the performance?
  1. Field trial vs. lab testing
  2. Accuracy of Simulation vs. experimental results
  3. Offline testing vs. real time testing
  4. What is an acceptable error between lab results and field trials?
  1. How do we close the gap between technology design and field deployment?
