Mode division multiplexing (MDM) is an auspicious technology for reducing the congestion of network traffic and accomplish the future demands of the network infrastructure. Multimode fiber has the amazing data growth, multiplexing, and modulating of the data which have been distributed in terms of phase, intensity, wavelength, time domains, and phase. This paper designs the MDM of spiral phased Hermite–Gaussian modes in multimode fiber. The performance of the system is evaluated by total received power, Q-factor, and eye-diagram at different input power and the range of the fiber length 20 km distance is achieved at 10 Gbps data rate with acceptable bit error rate.
