Summary: The asymmetric nature of bit errors in optical communication provides the grounds for efficient error control techniques; the \(Z\)-channel and systematic asymmetric error detection (AED) codes can be succesfully combined with ARQ protocols for feedback error control enhancement. The throughput and the accepted packet error rate for such systems are derived from the code construction. The results show that only a few check bits can provide a great deal of error protection and almost error-free transmission in optical networks.
