Nonlinear effects has been appointed as the main limitation in coherent optical fiber transmission. Digital Back-Propagation algorithms and Maximum Likelihood Sequence Estimation are two of the current studied methods to cope with such impairment and extend the systems maximum reach. In this article, we analyzed both methods in a 112 Gb/s Dual Polarization Quadrature Phase Shifting Keying (DP-QPSK) optical coherent system through simulations and experimental results. In order to reduce the huge required computational complexity, a modified back-propagation algorithm is also analyzed.
