The primary objective of the project is to demonstrate 40 Gbit/s transmission over currently installed optical fibre lines at 1.55 µm. To achieve this primary goal, two complementary objectives have been defined for the project: Investigation and development of non-linear soliton propagation techniques at 40 Gbit/s for a field trial over Dispersion Shifted Fibre (DSF) lines and investigation and development of linear transmission techniques to undertake a field demonstration of the capability of 40 GHz transmission over standard fibre lines.
