43Gbit/s RZ-DQPSK transmission over 1000km of G.652 ultra-low-loss fibre with 250km amplifier spans


We demonstrate 40x43Gbit/s RZ-DQPSK transmission over 1000km of ultra-low-loss G.652 fibre with 250km amplifier spacing. Hybrid Raman-EDFA amplification with co- and contra-directional Raman pumping enables 27dB Raman gain per span and error-free post-FEC performance. ©2010 IEEE.
