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.
For AWGN channel, the shannon capacity is normalized with respect to the bandwidth and expressed in bps, that is, normalized with respect to the bandwidth, is
