Through this algorithm, NEC obtained an optimized 32QAM (opt32) constellation that achieves close to Shannon capacity, but more importantly, has a higher nonlinear capacity limit, which is especially more relevant to submarine transmission.
It needs to be pointed out that different orthogonal multiplexing techniques achieve the same Shannon capacity performance in an information-theoretical sense.
