Abstract

For the first time, we demonstrate in this paper an intensity-modulation direct-detection (IMDD) universal filtered multi-carrier (UFMC) system through several hundred meters of multimode fiber (MMF) that can be adopted for 5G communications and beyond. The proposed system is simulated and evaluated in terms of bit error rate (BER), Q factor, out of band (OOB) emission and Peak-to-Average Power Ratio (PAPR), at a data rate of 10 Gb/s. It is shown that filtering used with UFMC reduces the OOB radiation by 40 dB compared to orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM). Moreover, we prove that UFMC gives lower values of BER than OFDM, and even if the PAPR ratio of UFMC is higher than OFDM, the gap remains small. The results also show that using a Volterra equalizer with increasing taps enables to obtain acceptable performance through the MMF in terms of BER, even with high number of excited mode groups.
