    Forward error correction codes for 100 Gb/s optical transmission are currently receiving much attention from transport network operators and technology providers. We discuss the performance of hard decision decoding using product type codes that cover a single OTN frame or a small number of such frames. In particular we argue that a three-error correcting BCH is the best choice for the component code in such systems.
