Abstract

A novel forward error correction (FEC) scheme for long-haul optical communication systems based on irregular low-density parity check codes and iterative decoding is proposed. The proposed FEC scheme for long-haul optical transmission significantly outperforms all previously reported FEC schemes, and it has a potential for achieving theoretical limits on reliable transmission through an optical communication channel.
