Abstract

Today, transmission systems employing advanced modulation formats and coherent receivers with channel capacities of 40 Gb/s are widely deployed. The first coherent commercial 100 Gb/s was put into service in late 2009. Digital signal processing is central to the implementation of high performance fiber transmission systems. This presentation will discuss current DSP implementations in CMOS, and the prospects for 1000 Gb/s systems.

Biography

Kim Roberts (kroberts@ciena.com) has innovated in the areas of optical transmission and high capacity packet connections since 1984. His creations are at the heart of much of CIENA’s (Formerly Nortel’s) optical transmission portfolio from the first OC-48 to the 40 and 100 Gb/s DSP-assisted coherent transceivers. He has been granted over 100 US patents while at labs in Edmonton, Harlow UK, and Ottawa. He was named a Nortel Fellow and received the Outstanding Engineer medal in 2008 from IEEE Canada.
