Recent UCL-Mitsubishi Collaboration Produces Top-Rated Research
The collaboration has explored the interaction between coding and modulation in long-reach optical communications. Using 24-Dimensional extended Golay Coded Modulation, the transmission reach of the optical link was increased by 15%.
The resulting research, presented at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference (OFC) March 2014, was one of a small fraction of top-scored submissions. Entitled "Experimental Demonstration of 24-Dimensional Extended Golay Coded Modulation with LDPC", the work was presented by David Millar, MERL.
OFC is the largest global conference and exposition for optical communications and networking professionals.
