Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition 2016
W3C • Fixed Mobile Convergence II
W3C.6 • LTE-A Mobile Fronthaul Exploiting Pulse-Width Modulation in a RSOAbased WDM PON, Alberto Gatto , Pierpaolo Boffi, Lorenzo Combi, Paola Parolari , Umberto Spagnolini, Romain Brenot, Mario Martinelli.
Abstract: Pulse width modulation for optical C-RAN fronthauling of 100-MHz bandwidth LTE-A signals is proved for the first time in a colorless self-tuning WDM PON, exploiting broadbandseeded RSOAs. Transmission up to 20-km SSMF is experimentally demonstrated.
Th3C • FDM/OFDM for Access
Th3C.7 • Very High Capacity VCSEL-based Transmission in Short-Range Systems with Multicarrier Modulation, Alberto Gatto, Debora Argenio, Pierpaolo Boffi.
Abstract: Optimized FDM subcarriers modulation and allocation are demonstrated to overcome VCSEL-based system bandwidth limitations and to match the not-uniform frequency response due to direct modulation/detection, achieving at least 25-Gb/s capacity also over 20-km SSMF reach.
Th3C.8 • NG-PON2 Compliant RSOA-based FDM PON Architecture for Flexible Upstream Bandwidth Allocation, Alberto Gatto , Paola Parolari , Marco Brunero, Paolo Martelli, Romain Brenot, Pierpaolo Boffi.
Abstract: We propose an upstream FDM PON architecture exploiting RSOA at the ONU, maintaining NG-PON2 standard layout with flexible bandwidth allocation. 2-Gb/s upstream transmission per user is experimentally demonstrated, targeting 128-Gb/s overall capacity.
Tu2H • SDM Networking
Tu2H.6 • On the Benefits of Few-Mode Transmission in Ring Metro Optical Networks with Flexible Grid, Cristina Rottondi, Pierpaolo Boffi, Paolo Martelli , Massimo Tornatore.
Abstract: For RSA optimization in few-mode flexi-grid rings, we derive distance-adaptive reaches for low MIMO complexity transceivers up to 5 modes and optimally solve the problem under two different assumptions on spatial flexibility.
Th2A • Poster Session II
Th2A.56 Full-Mesh Optical Backplane with Modular Fiber Ribbon-based SubCircuits, Maddalena Ferrario, Domenico Coviello, Pierpaolo Boffi, Vito Basile, Irene Fassi, Matteo Falcucci, Chiara Renghini, Mario Martinelli.
Abstract: A modular, scalable and full-mesh bandwidth-upgradable optical interconnection between optoelectronic boards is guaranteed thanks to an optimized layout of standard MM fiber ribbons which divides the overall backplane into independent optical sub-circuits.
