High order modulation formats allow to reach higher spectral efficiency and data rate. However, their practical implementation is limited by their reduced tolerance to noise and to the optical signal power that can be launched into the fiber without generating excessive nonlinear signal distortions. In this paper, it is demonstrated that Turbo Equalization routines can be used to mitigate performance degradations stemming from optical fiber propagation effects both in optical fiber dispersion managed and unmanaged coherent detection links. The effectiveness of this solution is analyzed both numerically and experimentally for different transmission systems.
