Abstract

In this paper, we present the design and analysis of an adaptive cost-effective discrete multitone transponder (DMT) using direct detection (DD) suitable for data center interconnections. Levin Campello margin adaptive (LC-MA) algorithm is applied to the transponder digital signal processing modules to enhance fiber chromatic dispersion (CD) resilience, while achieving high-data rate transmission. The bit error rate (BER) performance and the rate/distance adaptive capabilities of the proposed transponder have been numerically analyzed and compared to bandwidth variable uniform loading, taking into account the transmission impairments at the varying of the fiber length. Specifically, the performance of the designed transponder has been assessed from $20$ to $112$ Gb/s, extending the achievable reach at $50$ Gb/s beyond $80$ km of standard single mode fiber (SSMF). The numerical simulations have been compared with experimental results, evidencing good agreement in presence of transmission impairments.
