In this paper, we review the system configurations and
performance of high-speed digital optical transmission
using sub-carrier multiplexing (SCM). Single-side-band
optical modulation at the transmitter can be used to
significantly decrease dispersion penalty and increase the
optical bandwidth efficiency. SCM system using different
types of optical receivers will be discussed and impact of
fiber nonlinearity and polarization mode dispersion will
also be addressed.
