Sander Jansen takes in-depth look at design trade-offs in terabit-class transceivers

OFC short course will focus on benefits of multi-carrier modulation and superchannels for next-gen optical transport systems

  • Speakers: Sander Jansen, director, product line management, ADVA; Dirk van den Borne, director, IP-optical architecture, Juniper Networks
  • Topics: Multi-carrier modulation and superchannels for terabit-class transceivers
  • When: Sunday, March 3, 9 a.m.
  • Where: OFC, The Optical Networking and Communication Conference & Exhibition, San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, California, USA

During the last decade 100Gbit/s modulation with coherent detection and digital signal processing has become the de-facto standard for optical transport, and the industry is now busy developing the next generation of 400Gbit/s systems. Next-generation 7nm CMOS technology will enable terabit-class digital signal processing in a single ASIC and higher sample rate DAC/ADCs can engineer a wider spectrum. At the same time, the tight integration of optics with the DSP potentially enables baud rates in excess of 100Gbaud. How will this impact optical transport, and which transceiver architectures and modulation formats are most optimal for this technology?

Participants will benefit from Sander Jansen and Dirk van den Borne‚Äôs expert knowledge and gain a broad insight into design trade-offs in terabit-class transceivers.
