This paper reviews high-capacity space-division multiplexed (SDM) optical transport system technologies that support the evolution of broadband networks. Technologies that offer new spatial degrees of freedom such as core multiplexing and mode multiplexing can be introduced to optical transmission systems, optical switching systems, and optical fibers; they overcome the physical limits of today’s transport systems based on single-mode fibers. The expected features of future SDM-based optical transport networks are achieving both high transmission capacity over 1 Pbit/s and node throughputs above 10 Pbit/s, while reducing the power consumption and the size of transport node equipment.
