NTT: World's Largest Capacity of 1.2 Tbit/s Per Wavelength Achieved by Newly Developed Digital Coherent Signal Processing Circuit and Optical Device
NTT Corporation (NTT, Head office: Chiyoda-ku Tokyo; President & CEO: Akira Shimada) has developed a digital coherentsignal processing circuit and optical device that achieves the world's largest capacity of 1.2 Tbit/s per wavelength for optical transmission, which is 1.5 times faster than before. With this development, NTT tackles the challenge of achieving advanced optical transmission technology that can economically and significantly expand the capacity of existing systems while reducing the power consumption of communication devices.
The technology has also achieved the world’s highest optical signal modulation speed of 140 Giga baud and enables double the previous world record optical transmission distance of 800 Gbit/s. As a result, the capacity of optical transmission systems will increase by 12 times and the power consumption per bit will be reduced to 10% of the widely used commercial system. The improvements in the performance and power consumption of optical transmission systems should contribute to the All-Photonics Network foundational to the IOWN1 concept.
Our digital coherent signal processing circuit combines cutting-edge coded modulation with transmission performance approaching the theoretical limit and newly developed forward error correction that can correct bit errors in large amounts of data with low power consumption. This results in flexible coded modulation that maximizes the potential of high-speed optical devices. Furthermore, by utilizing a power-efficient algorithm to equalize signal distortion in the optical fiber transmission channel and the advanced CMOS processes, we have achieved a digital signal processing of 1.2 Tbit/s per wavelength with low power consumption.
The transceiver consists of a cutting-edge digital coherent signal processing circuit and a 140-Giga baud class optical device with the world's widest-class opto-electrical response bandwidth. In our approach, by increasing the modulation speed from 100 Giga baud to 140 Giga baud, higher resistance to waveform distortion and optical amplification noise caused by transmission could be achieved. As a result, the previous record transmission distance of 800 Gbit/s signals can be extended by more than twice that of the 100 Giga baud devices.
Toward the development of IOWN, NTT aims to create an innovative network with high capacity, low latency, flexibility, and low power consumption by continuing to expand and develop end-to-end photonics technology. We will promote the creation of economical, large-capacity, low-power-consumption networks by leveraging advanced optical transmission systems based on innovative technology. We also intend to collaborate with both international and domestic partners so that our developments can be valuable and beneficial for communities worldwide.

IEEE Announces Decision on Its Standards-related Patent Policy30.9.2022 18:31:00 CEST | Press release
The IEEE Standards Association Board of Governors (IEEE SA BOG) took action to update the Patent Policy for IEEE standards development, which will go into effect 01 January 2023. These updates are intended to improve the clarity of IEEE’s standards processes related to patented technologies, while offering more options for stakeholders. In accordance with IEEE SA’s policies and procedures, the following resolutions were approved by consensus without objections by the full IEEE SA BOG. The IEEE SA BOG approved proposed updates to the IEEE SA Standards Board Bylaws, effective 01 January 2023. The IEEE SA BOG approved proposed updates to the IEEE SA Letter of Assurance (LOA) form, effective 01 January 2023. The IEEE SA BOG approved proposed updates to the patent policy FAQs, effective 01 January 2023. For the same IEEE standard, in instances where there is one Submitter of an Accepted LOA under the 2015 policy and another Submitter of an Accepted LOA under a subsequent policy or using the
Calling All Sake Aficionados! October 1st Is "Sake Day." Let's Kampai Together!! (Kampai Means "Toast" in Japanese)30.9.2022 16:00:00 CEST | Press release
There are countless events around the world celebrating the delights of wine and beer; October 1st is known as "Sake Day," where sake lovers worldwide gather, enjoy, and appreciate this delicious beverage. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20220929005349/en/ toast (Photo: Business Wire) Sake Day was set as October 1st by the Japan Sake and Shochu Makers Association (JSS), the largest sake industry organization in Japan with members consisting of some 1,700 producers of sake, Honkaku Shochu, Awamori, and Hon-Mirin. This date was selected because October 1st marked the beginning of the new brewing season using freshly harvested rice crops. Events celebrating sake have been planned worldwide for Sake Day on October 1st. In Japan, the "Kampai! with Sake Week" event will run for ten days around Sake Day on October 1st, where JSS, prefectural sake organizations, breweries, restaurants, liquor stores, and sake lovers wil
