Abstract

A superchannel transmitter with fixed 1-Tb/s net data rate and flexible modulation format suitable for dynamic distance/route transmission is proposed. System reach between 800 and 6,000km was achieved with spectral efficiency from 6.15b/s/Hz and 3.33b/s/Hz.between 6.15-b/s/Hz to 3.33-b/s/Hz.
