Paper Abstract

We investigate the pattern-dependent decoding failures that occur with electronic dispersion compensation (EDC) when using full optical-field reconstruction, and find that the performance of such an EDC receiver may be degraded by an isolated '1' bit surrounded by long strings of consecutive '0's. By reducing the probability of occurrence of this kind of isolated '1', we experimentally achieved 10Gbit/s on-off keyed signal transmission over 372km field-installed singlemode fiber without optical dispersion compensation.
