Calculating QAM Bandwidth Gains

This article was written by John Houghton and proofread for accuracy by Ferris Lipscomb, Ph.D, Solid State Physics, NeoPhotonics. Let’s say you’re not the technical type and someone in a meeting asks, “If we go from 16 QAM to 64 QAM, how much more bandwidth will we get?” (QAM means Quadrature Amplitude Modulation—a way of … Continue reading Calculating QAM Bandwidth Gains
