Abstract

Improving widely applied techniques will only yield modest transmission capacity gain. Spatial division multiplexing (SDM) is seen as the next transmission capacity enhancement dimension by employing either multi-core or multi-mode fibers with advanced modulation formats, receivers, and digital signal processing. The effect of spatial division multiplexing on multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) digital signal processing (DSP) in coherent receivers is shown for three mode fibers (3MF) with large differential modal delay (DMD). The paper concludes with a discussion on preferred fiber characteristics for future spatial division multiplexing systems.
