Nokia, Etisalat conduct single-carrier terabit optical transmission field trial

Nokia and Etisalat have conducted the first field trial of single-carrier terabit optical transmission. The collaborators conducted the 1-Tbps transmission on a deployed fiber-network in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), transmitting a total of 50.8 Tbps via multiple wavelengths, each with a net information rate of 1.3 Tbps, over a 93-km fiber route. The optical transmissions were based on a single optical carrier operating at 100 Gbaud and Nokia Bell Labs-pioneered probabilistic constellation shaping (PCS).
