Data streams with bit rates of up to 1 Gbit s have been applied though the subcarrier modulation technique in an experimentally deployed optical communication system based on chaos data encryption and have been recovered efficiently. By shifting the spectral components of the encrypted data in regions where the chaotic carrier is powerful, a more efficient encryption and final message recovery is recorded with respect to the baseband modulation technique, improving the up-to-date performance of analogous systems.
