Modulation formats for wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) systems

Büyükşahin Öncel, F. Feza
Optical communication networks are becoming the backbone of both national and international telecommunication networks. With the progress of optical communication systems, and the constraints brought by WDM transmissions and increased bit rates, new ways to convert the binary data signal on the optical carrier have been proposed. There are different factors that should be considered for the right choice of modulation format, such as information spectral density (ISD), power margin, and tolerance against group-velocity dispersion (GVD) and against fiber nonlinear effects like self-phase modulation (SPM), cross-phase modulation (XPM), four-wave mixing (FWM), and stimulated Raman scattering (SRS). In this dissertation, the several very important modulation formats such as Non Return to Zero (NRZ), Return to Zero (RZ), Chirped Return to Zero (CRZ), Carrier Suppressed Return to Zero (CSRZ), Differential Phase Shift Keying (PSK) and Carrier Suppressed Return to Zero- Differential Phase Shift Keying (CSRZ-DPSK) will be detailed and compared. In order to make performance analysis of such modulation formats, the simulation will be done by using VPItransmissionMakerTM WDM software.


GreenSlice: An Energy-Efficient Secure Network Slicing Framework
Akin, Ozan; Gulmez, Umut Can; Sazak, Ozan; Yagmur, Osman Ufuk; Angın, Pelin (2022-02-01)
The fifth generation of telecommunication networks comes with various use cases such as Enhanced Mobile Broadband, Ultra-Reliable and Low Latency Communications and Massive Machine Type Communications. These different types of communications have diverse requirements that need to be satisfied while they utilize the same physical infrastructure. By leveraging Software Defined Network (SDN) and Virtual Network Function (VNF) technologies, the 5G network slicing concept can provide end-to-end logical networks ...
Measurement-based replanning of GSM cell capacities considering retrials, redials and hand-offs
Onur, Ertan; Ersoy, C; Caglayan, MU (2002-01-01)
During the optimization of a Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) network, the operations and maintenance center (OMC) measurements are of significant importance. Because of false predictions, the capacity planning of a cell may be done inaccurately. If the capacity of the cell is not adequate to handle all of the busy-hour requests, the requests are not granted a channel and users are blocked. Thus, when the blocking ratio is high, the cellular capacity should be replanned. However, the capacity p...
Mobile multi-access IP: a proposal for mobile multi-access management in future wireless IP networks
Altuntas, S; Baykal, Buyurman (Elsevier BV, 2005-03-15)
As the wireless networking technologies advance rapidly, providing mobile users with roaming freely in heterogeneous wireless access domains, the need for multi-access arises. This paper introduces the Mobile Multi-Access Management Architecture (MMA-IP) for IP-based future wireless networks. MMA-IP enables mobile users to utilize multiple access domains synchronously and to switch between different access domains. In order to handle multi-access operations, MMA-IP defines a new special mobility agent, call...
Information-centric sensor networks for cognitive IoT: an overview
Al-Turjman, Fadi M. (2017-02-01)
Information-centric sensor networks (ICSNs) are a paradigm of wireless sensor networks that focus on delivering information from the network based on user requirements, rather than serving as a point-to-point data communication network. Introducing learning in such networks can help to dynamically identify good data delivery paths by correlating past actions and results, make intelligent adaptations to improve the network lifetime, and also improve the quality of information delivered by the network to the ...
Optimal deployment in randomly deployed heterogeneous WSNs: A connected coverage approach
SEVGİ, CÜNEYT; Koçyiğit, Altan (2014-11-01)
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are resource-scarce networks and the optimization of the resources is challenging. As far as random deployment is concerned, the optimization of these resources becomes even more difficult In this paper, a novel framework is proposed for solving optimal deployment problems for randomly deployed and clustered WSNs. In several existing approaches to solve these problems, either only partial-coverage is considered or only connectivity is analyzed when full-coverage is assured. T...
