New Milestones in Coherent Optical Performance

 View this OIDA Webinar sponsored by Infinera on New Milestones in Coherent Optical Performance


Meeting Description:
As the latest generation of coherent detection and signal processing is deployed in live networks, their performance is not only meeting but exceeding expectations. Commercially available optical engines and transport systems now incorporate a broad range of advanced coherent technologies that together deliver dramatic improvements and new records for real-world spectral efficiency and capacity, as much as 50% higher than previously demonstrated. They are also delivering critical improvements in transport system availability by eliminating lightning-related service impacts on aerial fiber systems.
Meanwhile, research continues on innovations that will appear in future optical engine generations, delivering further improvements in capacity, performance and cost. Recent experimental results demonstrate the feasibility of such techniques as 1024 QAM modulation with constellation shaping and 100 gigabaud transmission, showing the way to a future of 1 terabit per second single-wavelength transmission.
This webinar will focus on these and other recent performance milestones enabled by advanced coherent technologies, from both real-world deployments and research demonstrations.

 Matthew Mitchell currently serves as Vice President of Optical Systems Architecture at Infinera Corporation. He received his M.S and Ph.D degrees in Electrical Engineering from Princeton University in 1995 and 1998 respectively. Upon finishing his Ph.D. he became a member of technical staff within the Advanced Development Department at Lucent Bell Laboratories working on high channel count DWDM transmission. In 2000, he became a member of technical staff at Corvis Communications serving as a technical lead in developing a next generation 10Gb/s DWDM long haul transport product. He has been with Infinera since 2001 and has contributed to numerous efforts including optical architecture, hardware research and development, and the creation of optical system planning tools. Dr. Mitchell is a member of the Optical Society of America, has co-authored over 30 peer-reviewed publications and holds 26 patents in the area of optical transmission and nonlinear optics.
