Abstract

In this paper we evaluate numerically the advantage of combining convolutional coding and bandwidth-efficient modulation. We compare different multilevel modulation formats, line codes, and hard/soft decision decoding. Compared with DPSK modulation (with the same bandwidth and information transmission rate), an improvement of almost 5 dB is observed for bit error rates around 10-8. We also study the robustness to intersymbol interference in the form of chromatic dispersion, and find that the improvement of the coded transmission lines improves over the uncoded even in presence of chromatic dispersion.
