Abstract

We demonstrate a record 38.4Tb/s 64QAM C-band transmission over 762km of field deployed SSMF fiber, connecting Lyon and Marseille, France, employing hybrid EDFA-Raman amplification and achieve a spectral efficiency of 8b/s/Hz. Furthermore, we demonstrate, for the first time to our knowledge, flexi-rate transmission over the same commercial link, using quad-carrier 1Tb/s 16QAM (24.0 Tb/s), 1Tb/s 32QAM (32.0 Tb/s) and 1.2Tb/s 64QAM (38.4 Tb/s).
