In this work, we demonstrate the transmission of 50 Gb/s over 50 m of multimode graded-index
polymer optical fiber. The transmission has been achieved employing wavelength division multiplexing
technology with four channels in the C Band 12.5 Gb/s each. The results presented here will improve the current
state of the art in short distance applications employing POF, paving the way for a more intense use of this fiber
in the near future.
