Digital coherent optical transmission technology
A next-generation optical transmission method that combines coherent reception and digital signal processing. In addition to streamlining frequency usage through modulation methods such as polarization wave multiplexing and phase modulation, the technology enables significant improvements in reception sensitivity.
Digital Signal Processing LSI. A signal processing method for converting analog data to digital data. http://www.ntt-electronics.com/new/information/2012_02_29.html
 Dual-polarization quadrature phase shift keying
A technique in which information is conveyed through an optical wave's oscillation timing (phase).
 Quadrature amplitude modulation
A technique in which information is conveyed through both an optical wave's amplitude and phase.
 Nonlinear optical effects
A phenomenon in which the optical fiber's refractive index changes in response to the light's intensity.
 Chromatic dispersion
A phenomenon in which different wavelengths are transmitted at different speeds within an optical fiber.
 Polarization mode dispersion
A phenomenon that causes differences in transmission delay times within optical fibers due to polarization (direction of vibrations in the electrical field).
 Adaptive modulation/demodulation
Technology that enables the efficient operation of optical network resources through improved line quality by switching to the optimal modulation/demodulation method depending on the characteristics of the optical network.
