Abstract

Carrierless amplitude phase (CAP) modulation format has appeared as a potential advanced modulation format candidate for spectrally efficient single-carrier modulation type due to less complexity and has competitive performance. In this paper, the comparison between 2D-CAP-4 and 4-QAM-DMT modulation format over 3 km single mode fiber (SMF) transmission link using 1310 nm vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) has been performed for inhome network environment. The net bit rates of 625 Mb/s and 454.6 Mb/s are achieved for 2D-CAP-4 and 4-QAM-DMT, respectively. Spectral efficiencies of 1.89 b/s/Hz for 2D-CAP-4 and 1.43 b/s/Hz for 4-QAM-DMT are reported. It is observed that 2D-CAP-4 outperforms 4-QAM-DMT with 1.14 dB better receiver sensitivity. These results indicate that the privilege properties of CAP modulation format can be an attractive prospect for in-home network environment.
