Abstract
Capacity upgrade of already installed undersea cable system is attractive from the cost point of view. Advanced technologies such as powerful forward error correction support this upgrade. In this paper, we demonstrate a system capacity upgrade beyond the designed limitation experimentally using the advanced technologies. As a result, a possibility to triple the designed capacity of trans-Atlantic system is shown. In addition, we propose a configuration to improve the transmission efficiency of the network combined with the expansion of the already installed undersea cable system.
