Abstract

We demonstrate transmission of a 111-Gb/s coherent polarization-multiplexed return-to-zero differential quadrature phase-shift keying signal over 1040-km field-deployed fiber together with different types of neighboring channels, and with a cascade of 50-GHz reconfigerable optical add-drop multiplexers. Our transmission experiment proves the feasibility of transmitting a 111-Gb/s phase-modulated channel with 10 times 10.7-Gb/s on-off keying neighboring channels on a 50-GHz grid, despite the presence of strong cross-phase modulation.
