The objective of this paper is to describe the OIF work on 100G DWDM transmission. The objective of this work is to aid the industry in the development of transceiver technology for transport of 100G signals in long distance backbone networks. This paper identifies high level system objectives for this network application, and focuses on one specific implementation approach for a transceiver module. It describes the modulation method chosen for this implementation, and the rationale for this choice. It identifies a transceiver module functional architecture, and decomposes that architecture into a number of technology building blocks.
