Abstract

In this paper we evaluate numerically the advantage of combining convolutional coding and bandwidth-efficient modulation. We compare different multilevel modulation formats, line codes, and hard/soft decision decoding. Compared with DPSK modulation (with the same bandwidth and information transmission rate), an improvement of almost 5 dB is observed for bit error rates around 10-8. We also study the robustness to intersymbol interference in the form of chromatic dispersion, and find that the improvement of the coded transmission lines improves over the uncoded even in presence of chromatic dispersion.

Simulation results for coded DPSK/ASK with Viterbi hard decision decoding and uncoded NRZ-OOK. Two convolutional codes are compared. The information bit rate is in all cases 10 Gb/s, apart from the two rightmost curves, showing the BER for the optical channel data before the Viterbi decoding. Thus the BER input-output performance of the two codes can be obtained by comparing the two rightmost curves with the leftmost decoded curves (triangles,crosses).
