Paper Abstract

In this paper, forward error correction schemes are discussed for application in the multigigabit-per-second optical channel. The proposed schemes, based on specific convolutional codes which allow simple decoding techniques, represent a valid alternative, in terms of performance and complexity, to the recommended Reed-Solomon codes.
