Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing is a flexible modulation technique well known from wireless and wireline communications. Recently, it is also under discussion for optical communications. Beside transmission with coherent detection for optimum transmission quality also less complex schemes have been proposed applying direct detection. One promising approach called compatible single side-band modulation will be discussed in this paper.
