Paper Abstract

Digital subcarrier multiplexing (DSCM) is a frequency division multiplexing (FDM) technique which makes use of multiple digitally created subcarriers on each wavelength. This circuit-based approach combined with elastic optic networking has the potential to provide high bandwidth efficiency, sub-wavelength level flexible data-rate granularity, and electronic compensation of transmission impairments. We present our study and testbed development about a DSCM crossconnect which allows dynamic bandwidth, frequency and power level assignment of each individual digital subcarrier channel in order to achieve the desired data rate granularity as well as the quality of transmission.
