INTRODUCTION In communication technology, a large bandwidth was the universal demand forthe industrial and consumer application. For this, advanced modulation techniquesused in optical communication in terms of high bandwidth data communication. Inadvanced modulation formats, the ones that make use of not only amplitude but alsoother signal domains, such as phase and the state of polarization are moresophisticated techniques to encode the electrical data pattern onto an optical carrier.This produces an enhancement in the functionality and an increase in the spectralefficiency compared to the analogue modulation formats of fiber opticcommunication. The major advantage of using fiber optic digital modulation formats is that theuse of digital signals reduces hardware complexity, noise and interference difficultiesare compared to the analogue signal where large number of wave forms will berequired resulting in a large bandwidth for the symbol to be transmitted [4]. Over the past years various digital modulation formats designed which aremainly consists of 2.5,10,25,40 and 100 Gb/s wave length channels. But for todayoptical communication systems, data rate per channel increases to beyond 100 Gb/s.The 100 Gb/s Ethernet (GbE) interfaces have been published by the IEEE standard802.3ba [6] in 2010 for 10 Km and 40 Km reach, using 4 channels with 25 Gb/s. Theline side bit rate of about 112 Gb/s (OTU4 bit rate) and the OTN multiplex with theclient data and standard Reed Soloman FEC has been defined by ITU-T standardG.709 [7] published in 2009. Since 2010, 100 Gb/s bandwidth systems slowly progress in the differentoptical communication networks for industrial applications. The moderncommunication optical systems requires data transmission at a higher rate i.e beyond100Gb/s (Exa:- 200Gb/s, 400 Gb/s, 1000 Gb/s and even 1T bit/s Ethernet). For shortreach clients side applications 100 Gb/s transmission desired with 10 No. Of 10 Gb/sor 4 No. Of 25 Gb/s [6]. For high transmission capacity, serial transmission of a hugenumber of digital wave division multiplexing channels at narrow channel spacing isbasically designed. This segment comparatively reviews the digital modulationtechnological options for serial transmission of within and beyond 100 Gb/s. In the introductory part we elaborate the bit rate in Mb/s with respect to thewavelength of optical source, the repeater spacing and optical carrier. Then in the firstpart we express on 40Gb/s optical systems and represent an overview on themodulation formats starting from binary amplitude shift keying to M-QAM.Thesecond section is expressing on 100Gb/s systems and give an overview on thedifferent features,system tolerances and main characteristics. In the third section wefocus on the digital modulation formats for systems beyond 100 Gb/s. 199

ANALOG OPTICAL FIBER MODULATION TECHNIQUES The optic baseband transmission in which the signal is carried on a light beam modulatedat the baseband frequencies of the information. In this analog modulation the optic power variesin proportion to the input current known as Intensity modulation.3.1 AM/IM Subcarrier modulation Conventional AM places message on a carrier whose frequency is much greater than themessages . AM of a single sinusoid can be written as i = Is (1+m cosωm) cosωsct (1)where ωsc is the subcarrier frequency.We can add a dc current I0 to the above current and drivean optic source with the result producing IM of a light beam by an AM signal. This is AM/IMmodulation that generates optic power. P=P0 + Ps(1+m cosωm) cosωsct (2) 200

International Journal of Electronics and Communication Engineering & Technology (IJECET), ISSN0976 – 6464(Print), ISSN 0976 – 6472(Online) Volume 4, Issue 2, March – April (2013), © IAEME3.2 FM/IM Subcarrier modulation Adding a dc current to the FM equation , i = Is cos (ωsct+β sinωmt) (3)where β is the modulation index and intensity modulating an optic source with it producesFM/IM modulation. For the sine wave optic power varies asP=P0 + Ps cos(ωsct+β sinωmt) (4)The detected current has the same waveform as the optic power. As the FM bandwidth is largerthan the AM bandwidth , fewer FM messages can be fitted within the fiber’s limited range offrequencies.3.3 PM Subcarrier modulation For analog optical communication , phase modulation is a advanced modulation formatwhich is a electro-optic effect principle that generates a phase shift [3]. That phase shift is linearlyproportional to the applied field. The phase demodulation process uses heterodyne detectionwhich forces a sinusoidal non linearity on the demodulated signal as comparison to the amplitudedemodulator [3].4. OPTICAL FIBER DIGITAL MODULATION TECHNIQUES Modulation is a method by which digital information is imprinted onto an optical carrierand in its most general sense also including CODING to present transmission errors. In opticalfibers the electromagnetic waves with frequencies of nearly 200THz are used to transferinformation from one point to another. In optical fiber communication systems the modulation ofboth amplitude and phase of the carrier allows for an improved utilisation of the complex plane,where information symbols are mapped, yielding an increased spectral efficiency.4.1 OOK/BASK The original signals are modulated onto high frequency optical carriers in optical fibercommunication systems. In ASK format the baseband signal is multiplied by a carrier frequency ,thus the binary 0 is transmitted with 0Watt and binary 1 with A Watt. The demodulation processat the receiving end is performed efficiently by applying photodetectors, which converts theoptical signal to the electrical signal. 4-ary ASK digital modulation formats are developed ,having M=2b where b is the number of bits per symbol used to double the transmission capacity.Table-11 summarizes the gain factor with respect to DBPSK. Table-12 shows the poorinformation capacity and bandwidth efficiency.4.2 BFSK BFSK is a data signal converted into a specific frequency in order to transmit it overoptical fiber media to a destination point. The choice of the frequency deviation depends on theavailable bandwidth. The total bandwidth of a FSK signal is given approximately by 2∆f+2Bwhere B is the bit rate. When ∆݂ ‫ , ܤ ب‬the bandwidth approaches 2∆f and is nearly independentof the bit rate. Table-12 compares the information capacity with OOK which is slightly better,but in Table-12 the bandwidth with OOK is not so efficient. 201

The binary 1is signed as sinωt and 0 issigned as -sinωt. Its demodulation process is so complex than other digital modulationformats.Table-9 summarizes the advantages and disadvantages of BPSK modulation format. Ithas small error rate as shown in Table-9.4.4 DPSK In optical transmission systems, the DPSK is preferred because of its high robustness tonon linear propagation[8] and to a smaller extent, to polarization mode dispersion(PMD) [9]. It isa fast and stable modulation format and well suited for many optical applications. It has someadvantages to the binary PSK, as a lower phase error rate and a no need to know the absolutephase. The information capacity is twice the BFSK as pointed in Table-12.4.5 NRZ/RZ-DPSK The multichannel parallel format conversions from the non return to zero DPSK(NRZ-DPSK) to the return to zero DPSK(RZ-DPSK) using a single semiconductor opticalamplifier(SOA). The simultaneous conversions are based on the cross phase modulation (xpm)effect , which is induced by a synchronous optical clock signal with high input power. The XPMadds an identical phase shift onto every input bit, resulting in the phase difference unchanged[5].The input spectra are broadened and subsequent filter is utilized to extract the specific part toform a RZ pulse 6 channel NRZ-DPSK signals at 40Gb/s can be converted to the correspondingRZ-DPSK signals with nearly 0.8 to -1dB power penalty for all the channels. The OSNRsensitivity at BER=2 ×10-3 (dB) is very small, i.e. 12.5 according to Table-7.4.6 QPSK In QPSK, two bits in the bit stream are taken and four phases of the carrier frequency areused to represent the four combinations of the two bits. There are different phases of the carrierare used to represent the four possible combinations of two bits : 00, 01, 10 and 11. It doubles theline rate compared to OOK by coding two bits in one symbol, applying 50Gbaud to get 100Gb/s.The output signal of the transmitter has mainly constant optical power and the information iscarried in the four phase states of the optical phase of the emitted light. Table-7 summarizes thatthe PMD tolerance without compensation higher than different DPSK formats. It has better errorperformance over BPSK and BFSK according to Table-9.4.7 DQPSK It is the four level version of DPSK. DQPSK transmits two bits for every symbol (bitcombination being 00, 01, 11 and 10) and has an advantage over DPSK is that it has narroweroptical spectrum which tolerate more dispersion (both chromatic and polarization mode), allowsfor stronger optical filtering and enables closer channel spacing. As a result, DQPSK allowsprocessing of 40Gb/s data rate in a 50GHz channel spacing system. The bandwidth saving ofDQPSK over both DD-OOK and DPSK suggest that DQPSK can improve the reach andefficiency of WDM systems according to Table-11. 202

International Journal of Electronics and Communication Engineering & Technology (IJECET), ISSN0976 – 6464(Print), ISSN 0976 – 6472(Online) Volume 4, Issue 2, March – April (2013), © IAEME4.8 RZ-DQPSK To get RZ-DQPSK signal, two phase modulators are cascaded for the modulation of theoptical phase by 0 to ߨ/2 and by 0 to ߨ/4 applying binary modulation signals or a single phasemodulator driven by an electrical 4-level modulation signals. The 100Gb/s transmission usingDQPSK modulation format has widely been demonstrated over either lab or field fibers at100Gb/s[10-12], with FEC overhead at 107Gb/s[13-17] and at 111Gb/s[18] and at 112Gb/s OTU-4channel bit rate[19, 20]. Table-8 compares the OSNR value of RZ-DQPSK with NRZ-DQPSK. AlsoTable-8 summarizes the modulated bandwidth which is doubles with respect to the NRZ-DQPSKformat.4.9 RZ-DPSK-3ASK This is a very fundamental mixer of ASK modulation and phase modulation. In RZ-DPSK-3ASK modulation format 2.5 bits are coded in one symbol which leads to a symbol rate of 43Gbauds[21-24] for support of the OTU4 line rate [7] of 112Gb/s. The OSNR tolerance of this modulationformat is limited, as a result, the transmission reach is also limited [25,26]. The main application areais in the metro where its estimated reach is less than 500 according to Table-13.4.10 PM-QPSK or DP-QPSK The 100Gb/s PM-QPSK transmission process [27] running at a symbol rate of 25-28Gbaud iswidely applied with off-line signal processing of the electrical signals which are measured by 4-channel high speed real time oscilloscopes acting as fast A/D convertors[28,29]. As per Table-13, itscompatibility with 10Gb/s and 40Gb/s is positive. The long haul OIF is the perfect application area forthis modulation format.4.11 PM-OFDM-QPSK or DP-OFDM-QPSK Another commercially available 100Gb/s transponder applies two narrow spaced (20GHz)optical carriers each modulated with PM-QPSK format based on 14Gbaud modulation [30,27]. Thismodulation format has been denoted as DP or PM-OFDM-QPSK and requires the hardware of two50Gb/s PM-QPSK transmitters and receivers. The compatibility with 10Gb/s and 40Gb/s is negativeshall be set according to Table-13.4.12 OP-FDM-RZ-DQPSK To carry two optical carriers, there are two polarizations can be used to eliminate the fastautomatic optical polarization demultiplexures [27]. The two carriers can be multiplexed anddemultiplexed with optical fibers. This modulation format based on 28Gbaud and has been entitled asorthogonal polarization frequency division multiplex RZ-DQPSK. But also to the separation of twooptical carriers in two polarizations only 100GHz channel spacing is supported. The compatibilitywith 10Gb/s and 40Gb/s is positive (which is negative in case of PM-OFDM-QPSK) shall be setaccording to Table-13.4.13 PM-DQPSK or DP-DQPSK By applying polarization division multiplexing (PM), we can reduce the symbol rate. As aresult the line rate is doubles or the symbol rate becomes half [27]. This leads to 100Gb/s polarizationmultiplexed DQPSK signals or dual polarization (DP) with a symbol rate of 28Gbaud to support theOTU 4 line rate. The 28Gbaud modulation formats supports the 100G DWDM transmission with 50GHz channel spacing. The two DQPSK signals are combined orthogonally polarized using apolarization beam combiner According to Table-13 the symbol rate is summarized as 28 which isalmost equal to OP-FDM-RZ-DQPSK optical digital modulation format. 203

In an M-QAM, m bits are transmitted in a single time slot [27].Optimizing the SE of signals with M-QAM constellations by Nyquist filtering towards Nyquist-WDM [32] is currently of high research interest and has already been demonstrated at submarinetransmission configurations[33] using RZ at PM-QPSK. Polarization multiplexed 16 QAMsignals have been realized by multilevel generation using passive combination of binary signalsto achieve 224 Gb/s channel rate(200G+FEC overhead)[45-47] and for 448 Gb/s channel rate[48]. Using polarization multiplexing and QAM modulation format transmission lengths between670 up to 1500km have been demonstrated [45-47]. RF-assisted optical Dual-carrier 112Gb/spolarization-multiplexed 16QAM is applied to achieve 112Gb/s channel rate[49]. DP-64QAMformat has been applied to achieve a 240Gb/s channel with 12 bits/symbol [50]. QAMmodulation is reported for lower bit rate channels of 100Gb/s using 32QAM[51], 100Gb/s using35QAM[52], 112Gb/s and 120Gb/s using 64QAM[53,54], 56Gb/s with a spectral efficiency of11.8bit/s/Hz using DP-256QAM[55], 54Gb/s using DP-512QAM[ 56]. According to Table-15,we conclude a comparative analysis between different M-QAM modulation techniques havingdifferent bit rate (Gb/s).4.15 MSK The new optical minimum shift keying modulation scheme have the high spectralefficiency as compared to other digital modulation formats. The transmitter for optical MSKbased on two Marh-Zehnder modulators (MZM) similar to the transmitter for DQPSK. The MSKreceiver with one delays and add filter (DAF) and photodiodes for direct detect detection issimilar to the DPSK receiver. On the basis of error performance, the signal coherence andderivation ratio are largely unaffected which is reflected according to the Table-9. By the Table-12, the information capacity is shown as doubles the capacity of BFSK signal.4.16 GMSK Gaussian minimum shift keying is a simple optical binary modulation scheme which isviewed as a derivative of optical MSK modulation technique. In this format , the side lobe levelsof the spectrum are further reduced by passing the modulating NRZ data waveform through a pre-modulation Gaussian pulse shaping filter. The bandwidth of a optical GMSK system is defined bythe relationship between the pre-modulation filter bandwidth B and the bit period TB. Thedecision of BTB according to 0.2GMSK, 0.25GMSK, 0.5GMSK at 99.99% are 1.22,1.37 and 2.08respectively.4.17 Single carrier (SC) modulation formats For bit rates beyond 100Gb/s on a single carrier, higher level modulation schemes likeQAM with PM is used to get a channel rate of 200Gb/s with 16QAM. In this format 2×m bits aretransmitted per symbol. Various constellations [27.31] can be applied for PM-QAM modulationformat. Minimizing the SE of signals with M-QAM constellation by Nyquist filtering towardsNyquist-WDM[32] is currently of high research interest and has already been demonstrated atsubmarine transmission configurations[33] using RZ at PM-QPSK. Table-14 gives an overviewon single channel M-QAM options from 200Gb/s to 1Tb/s [27] 204

To form the IFFT, DSP is applied in the transmitter. Due to therectangular (almost) safe of O-OFDM signals high capacity transmission can be performed byclose allocation of multiple OFDM signals in the frequency domain without guard bands A number of transmission experiments using polarization multiplexed O-OFDM and PM-O-OFDM have been reported [27,35-41], transporting Tb/s super channels over submarinedistances[41]. Recently field transmission trials over installed standard SMF applying PM-OFDMformat in co-propagation with 112G DQPSK channels are reported using 253 Gb/s OFDM super-channels with subcarriers carrying QPSK signals and 400Gb/s super-channels 8QAM signals[42] over 768 Km and Tb/s super-channels over 454 Km [43] and 3560 Km [44].

COMPARISON The different optical analog and digital modulation formats Table1-14 compares withdifferent parameters. In the introductory comparison Table-1 views on different wavelengthof optical source in um range from 1st generation to latest generation by which the bit rate ismuch more greater than previous generations. In the analog modulation format the types ofoptical fibers having different sizes Table-3 summarizes their optical losses per km range.We compare the different optical fiber parameters like attenuation , CD, self phase and crossmodulation, stimulated Raman Scattering in Table-4. The dispersion at 1550nm of differentfiber types like G.652,G.653,G655A-C and G656 overviews in Table-5. The bit rates perchannel (2.5Gb/s,10Gb/s,40Gb/s,etc) is illustrated in Table-6 which compares PMD delaylimit in ps with respect to return loss. It shows that the return loss especially same for ≤40Gb/s. Under SONET, 256 (optical carrier) optical interfaces are defined and their line ratescompares which is pointed in Table-2. Table-7 gives a comparative overview on filter tolerant for 50 GHz channel spacingwith PMD tolerance without compensation. The RZ-ADPSK and NRZ-ADPSK comparestheir nominal range EDFA are 2200 and1600 respectively. The No. of delay interoferometerand photodetectors used for different optical modulation formats like RZ-DPSK,NRZ-DPSK,RZ-DQPSK,NRZ-DQPSK (i.e phase shift keying modulation formats) is summarizedin Table-8. The modulated bandwidth of different BPSK schemes compares in Table-8. TheOSNR of different PSK formats and their error performances Table-8,9 for 40Gb/s isillustrated. The QAM ,16QAM and 64QAM modulation formats having their demodulationperformances compares in Table-9. The Laser line widths required to implement variousoptical digital modulation techniques by using a 0.5 dB penalty having 10Gb/s is exhibited inTable-10. In Table-11, the bandwidth saving of differential quadrature PSK over both DD-OOK and DPSK suggest that DQPSK can improve the efficiency of the different opticaldigital modulation formats. The GMSK error performance promotes ISI at higher bit ratetransmission compares with other optical digital modulation formats having excellentbandwidth efficiency Table-9,12. Various constellations can be applied for PM-QAMmodulation formats , e.g circular QAM symbol constellations or quadratic constellation withdifferent sizes as depicted in Table-13,14[27]. The different symbol rates of differentmodulation formats are compared with their area of application , estimated reach and spectralefficiency in Table-13. Table -14 reflects an comparative overview on single channel M-QAM options like PM-16QAM of 200Gb/s , PM-8QAM of 400Gb/s ,PM-32QAM of1000Gb/s ,PM-64QAM of 1000Gb/s ,PM-256QAM of 1000Gb/s by taking 40Gb/s value asreference , which considering polarization multiplexing for all options.6. CONCLUSION By the comparative analysis of the analog and digital optical modulation formatswhich is carried out in this article gives a conclusion that, for the excellent application , thedigital modulation format is highly applicable. At 40Gb/s the system designer has a soleconsideration for the techniques like BASK ,BFSK ,BPSK ,DPSK and DQPSK does notunder the region of consideration and the system designer has to think in terms of bettermodulation techniques like the MSK , GMSK and PM-QPSK , where PM-QPSK has provedits performance over the other two in the area of fiber optic communication. The 100Gb/smodulation format has been defined by an OIF framework and multisource agreement. 212

The symbol rate of 32Gbaud is compatible with opticalROADM technologies. So there is a argument in future 400Gb/s and 1Tb/s bit rates that ifsupports the ITU-T grid or not. But this challenge has a solution with high symbol ratescompared to presently used. If two carriers with 200Gb/s PM-16QAM modulated having32Gbaud is applied ,then the above argument may be solved with a spectral efficiency of 4.But single carrier PM-MQAM is a better solution for the above problem.REFERENCES[1] Fiber optic optic communication.[2] Fiber optic communication ,Joseph C.Palais ,fourth edition[3] Bryan M.
