High spectral efficiency transmission emulation for non-linear transmission performance estimation for high order modulation formats


We demonstrate a simple method to experimentally evaluate nonlinear transmission performance of high order modulation formats using a low number of channels and channel-like ASE. We verify it's behaviour is consistent with the AWGN model of transmission.
