We experimentally examine the maximum achievable transmission performance of a 7 channel Nyquist-WDM system with 10GBd per carrier. Back-to-back, a maximum of 11.9 bit/sym and 13.8 bit/sym can be transmitted for DP-64QAM and DP-256QAM respectively, while after 2 spans of transmission, a maximum of 12.4 bit/sym and 11.6 bit/sym can be achieved.
