Orthogonal, periodic-sinc-shaped sub-carrier spectra allow multi-carrier bands with the precise, rectangular frequency definition of Nyquist-WDM. Experimental demonstration of these 'folded' OFDM bands shows a 0.5-1.7-dB implementation penalty, allowing 520-Gb/s super-channel transmission over 4160 km.
