13.1 Expectations of Multicore Fibers

To overcome the issue of capacity limits in the existing optical fiber communications infrastructure, increasing the spatial efficiency within the available fiber cross-section is the most effective solution. Multicore fibers (MCFs), in conjunction with space-division multiplexing (SDM), are one of the most promising technologies for realizing such an increase in spatial efficiency. ...
