We demonstrate the first continuous variable quantum key distribution (CV-QKD) system with fully digital phase and polarization tracking, enabling the first wavelength division multiplexing experiment for CV-QKD. We transmit 194 × 0.5 GHz channels with 25 GHz channel spacing, demonstrating an aggregate estimated asymptotic secret key rate of 172.6 Mbit/s over 25 km.
