Abstract

We demonstrate 70.46 Tb/s transmission over 7,600 km and 71.65 Tb/s transmission over 6,970 km with C+L band EDFAs using a multidimensional coded modulation format with hybrid probabilistic and geometric constellation shaping. The proposed format (4D-PS-9/12-56APSK) is designed to approach Shannon limit and to improve the performance of nonlinearity compensation over conventional and probabilistically shaped 2-D formats. The receiver DSP uses multistage nonlinearity compensation that includes fast least-mean-square equalizer and generalized filter in addition to digital back propagation. The adaptive linear filters are aided by coded modulation decisions. We study the contribution of each algorithm and show an average total nonlinearity compensation benefit of 1.4 dBQ at the designed amplifier power.
