Abstract

Coding and modulation are two key elements to approach the Shannon limit. As forward-error correction has become indispensable for communications, probabilistic constellation shaping (PCS) is becoming the next essential element. We review the recent advances in rate-adaptable optical fiber communications based on probabilistic constellation shaping. We then report the transmission of probabilistically shaped (PS) 64-ary quadrature amplitude modulation at 7.46 b/s/Hz over a 5,523-km in-service trans-Atlantic fiber-optic cable. Using a looped-back system configuration, we achieve 5.68 b/s/Hz over a trans-Pacific-equivalent distance of 11,046 km. Net spectral efficiencies are increased by 18% and 80% by using PS, at 5,523 km and 11,046 km, respectively, compared to uniform square QAM.
