Abstract: We demonstrate a 3×10 Gbit/s transmission with BER below 1E-11 over 1 km of conventional graded-index multi-mode fiber using OOK modulation and direct detection. Reach and capacity boosts are enabled by selective mode-group multiplexing based on Multi-Plane Light Converters in 3 full mode groups of an OM2 fiber.
