Abstract: We show using simulations that a combination of Orthogonal
Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) and Optical Single Sideband
Modulation (OSSB) can be used to adaptively compensate for chromatic
dispersion in ultra-long-haul 10 Gbps Standard Single-Mode Fiber (S-SMF)
links. Additionally, for optical noise limited systems with Forward-Error
Correction, OFDM can accept an Optical Signal to Noise Ratio (OSNR) 0.5
dB lower than NRZ systems providing the optical carrier is suppressed.
