16 Gb/s Lightwave Transmission by Optical Time-Division Multiplexing

Rodney S. Tucker, Gadi Eisenstein, and Steven K. Korotky

Optical data at a bit rate of 16 Gb/s were recently transmitted over optical fiber in an experiment at AT&T Bell Laboratories. This is the highest transmission bit-rate reported for any single-channel lightwave system —an achievement made possible using optical technology to time-division multiplex and demultiplex the data.
