Sorin Tibuleac debates single- vs. multi-carrier transmission at OFC

Workshop to explore the future of coherent optics in the Terabit era

  • Speakers: Sorin Tibuleac, ADVA; Fred Buchali, Nokia Bell Labs; Andrea Carena, Politecnico di Torino; Alejandro Castrillon, Marvell; Junho Cho, Nokia Bell Labs; Ian Dedic, Acacia Communications; Maxim Kushnerov, Huawei; Han Sun, Infinera; Qunbi Zhuge, Shanghai Jiaotong University
  • Topics: Single-carrier versus multi-carrier for >800G coherent optics: a revived debate after a decade
  • When: Sunday, March 6, 4 p.m. PST
  • Where:  OFC, The Optical Networking and Communication Conference & Exhibition, San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, California, USA and virtual conference:

Since the advent of coherent detection more than a decade ago, commercial coherent optics have evolved from 100Gbit/s to 800Gbit/s, with a number of industry players now including subcarrier multiplexing mode in their latest 800Gbit/s coherent products. Will there be a multi-carrier revival? The last OFC workshop on multi-carrier modulation formats was back in 2009, so it’s about time for an update. 

In this session, Sorin Tibuleac will join other industry experts to revive the debate, combining historical and the state-of-the-art insights and aiming to shed light on the future design of ultra-high-speed coherent optics for the Terabit era. Register now for the in-person or virtual event beginning March 6.
