On Achievable Information Rates for Coherent Fiber-Optic Systems with Hard Decision Decoding
Paper in proceedings, 2017

We analyze achievable information rates (AIRs) for coherent fiber-optic systems with hard decision decoding and show that binary codes achieve higher rates than nonbinary codes, which translates into larger transmission reach. This result is confirmed by simulation of staircase codes.
