The total capacity of optical submarine cable systems as a global communication infrastructure must be continuously enlarged. Multi-core fibers (MCFs) have been studied as methods to maximize the total cable capacity under electrical power and cable space limitations. In particular, standard cladding MCFs, which are expected to have high productivity and mechanical reliability, are attractive for early deployment in submarine cable systems. In this paper, we demonstrate high-capacity trans-Pacific class transmission using standard cladding uncoupled 4-core fibers, achieving a transmission capacity of 55.94 Tbit/s over 12,040 km. In addition, based on the results of this and our previous coupled MCF transmission experiments, we summarize the characteristics of coupled and uncoupled MCFs applied to optical submarine cable systems.
