Paper Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate ultra-high-speed (40 Gb/s, 80 Gb/s, and 160 Gb/s) optical signal transmission in point-to-point terrestrial systems and transparent networks built on cross connects and add-drop multiplexers. Without using forward error correction, we demonstrate 40-Gb/s transmission over 2000 km based on a simple system design, 80-Gb/s transmission over 1200 km, and 160-Gb/s transmission over 300 km, all with 100-km terrestrial type transmission span. In addition, a new approach to generating phase-correlated ultra-high-speed signals is introduced. We also demonstrate 40-Gb/s transmission through wavelength-selective optical cross connects spaced by 400 km, as well as 40- and 160-Gb/s signal transmission through a new type optical add-drop multiplexer that can adapt to different data rates.
