This report concerns the development of high-speed (10 Gb/s and up) fiber optics communications systems in Ultra Long-haul, Long-haul (and partially Metro) networks.

In particular, it addresses current trends in efficient mitigation of Chromatic Dispersion for such systems.

It studies the transformation of the Chromatic Dispersion Compensators (CDCs) market due to commercialization of coherent receivers as well as advanced methods of modulation and employing of Digital Signal Processing (DSP).

In the analyzed period of time (2012-2016), 10 Gb/s fiber optics systems will coexist with the newer 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s systems (as well as, possibly even with higher transmission rate systems). Traditional CDCs will mainly be used in 10 Gb/s systems, which market may be on decline starting from 2016-2017 (though, still very significant). Together with this process, the market for higher rate systems will be growing as they are becoming more cost-efficient in satisfying user demand for transmission larger volumes of traffic. Chromatic Dispersion Compensators, in the form known by now, may become unnecessary for higher rate systems: all work will be done by the coherent READ MORE >
