Achievable rates of WDM and nonlinear frequency-division multiplexing (NFDM) are computed as a function of transmit power. The NFDM rate increases monotonically with power, in contrast to the WDM rate which characteristically vanishes at high powers. The improvement results from nonlinear signal multiplexing.
