Performance Evaluation and Comparison of 40 Gbps OTDM System using Different Fiber Standards
Optical Time Division Multiplexing (OTDM) is a very powerful technique that provides very high capacity of data over optical fiber. Various system impairments affect the performance of OTDM transmission. The performance of 40Gbps OTDM system is evaluated and compared using different fiber standards (Alcatel, ITU G.652, ITU G.653, ITU G.654 and ITU G.655). ITU G.653 gives optimum performance with the reach of 14km at Q factor of 6.20 with an acceptable bit error rate of 10-10 without compensation among all fibers.
