Abstract

This paper explores the feasibility of single-channel 50G and 100G transmission using 25G VCSEL technology. We show through experiments the practicality of 50G transmission through 100 m of OM3 multi-mode fiber. To address the question of whether single-channel 100G transmission is feasible, we show through simulation the needed reduction in relative intensity noise of 25G VCSELs and present a novel modulation technique which offers improved performance over conventional discrete multitone with little additional computational complexity.
