Abstract
We demonstrate an unrepeated transmission of 16×42.8 Gb/s over 200 km of a standard single-mode fiber (SMF) using a commercially available electroabsorption modulator (EAM). In an optical link, a distributed fiber Raman amplifier, a remote pumped optical amplifier, an optical booster amplifier, and an optical preamplifier are used for signal amplification. After transmission of 200 km, Q-values of the 16 channels range from 11.5 to 12.3 dB. The experimental result reveals that the EAM can be used for STM-256 (OC-768)-based long as well as short reach applications.
