Catering to the present curiosity in expanding the spectral potency of optical fiber networks by means of the deployment of high-order modulation codecs, this monograph describes transmitters, receivers and function of optical platforms with high-order part and quadrature amplitude modulation. within the first a part of the ebook, the writer discusses a variety of transmitter implementation innovations in addition to a number of receiver suggestions according to direct and coherent detection, together with designs of latest buildings. Hereby, either optical and electric elements are thought of, permitting the review of practicability and complexity. within the moment half, an in depth characterization of optical fiber transmission platforms is gifted, concerning quite a lot of modulation codecs. It offers perception within the primary habit of alternative codecs with admire to appropriate functionality degradation results and identifies the foremost developments in approach functionality.
