OFC and ECOC 2016 Improving the Tolerance to Noise in the Transmission of Optical Communication Signals

Southampton’s work on Nonlinearity mitigation in Transmission using Optical Phase Conjugation (OPC) was presented at IEEE/OSA OFC 2016. The experiments used WDM signals carrying 10 GBaud data encoded using 16-QAM and 64-QAM modulation formats, which were transmitted over 400km of the Aurora2 network. An optical phase conjugator was installed at the mid-point of the transmission, which gave rise to performance improvement through mitigation of the nonlinear phase noise generated during transmission

Context Aware Network project approved by EPSRC

Context Aware Network project approved by EPSRC

CASMS proposes to create an interconnected network of Virtual Reality (VR) test-beds located at Liverpool University, UCL and, subject to confirmation, Bristol, in order to develop an integrated experimental platform that provides remote VR experimentation. The existing NDFIS optical infrastructure will be used to interconnect UCL, Bristol and Telehouse at rates up to 100 Gb/s, while the Liverpool test-bed will be linked in via a 10GE Janet Lightpath terminated at Telehouse.
