A Simplified Dual-Carrier DP-64QAM 1 Tb/s Transceiver



A 1 Tb/s net bitrate transceiver using a low complexity dual-carrier architecture with free running lasers and DP-64QAM, enabled by pilot-aided DSP and low-rate LDPC, is shown to achieve transmission over 400 km with 100 km amplifier spacing.
