Record Ultra-high Full-fill Capacity Trans-Atlantic Submarine Deployment Ushering in the SDM Era

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


A record capacity of 24 Tbps on a 6,644 km trans-Atlantic deployment using 16QAM is enabled by synthesized subcarriers, FEC gain sharing, multi-carrier wavelocking, and large-area, high dispersion fiber. Computer assisted optimization and automated protection facilitate full-fill deployments becoming prevalent as submarine cables enter the SDM era.
