We review recent progress on high bit rate long-haul optical transport systems, with spectral efficiency times transmission distance as the main figure-of-merit. We discuss the potential of 100-Gb/s transport systems to survive higher bit rates, through ultra-dense channel packing and multiple-optical-carrier techniques.
