A multinary-signaling-based coded-modulation (CM) scheme is proposed, which is suitable for various applications ranging from multi-Tb/s to multi-Pb/s data rates, outperforming conventional CM schemes in terms of both spectral and energy efficiencies. The corresponding multinary signal constellation design algorithm is also proposed. Both 2-D and 3-D multinary-signaling-based CM schemes have been studied.
