Abstract

We demonstrate that the transmission of 40Gbitss return-to-zero differential phase-shift keying (RZ-DPSK) signals is robust to lumped dispersion mapping on a typical installed terrestrial single-mode fiber/dispersion compensating fiber (SMF–DCF) link and will withstand, in this case, propagation through over 800km of SMF with zero in-line group-velocity dispersion compensation while maintaining similar performance to configurations with periodic mapping. We establish that upgrading similar point-to-point links, which have lumped dispersion maps, are compatible with 40Gbitss RZ-DPSK and that economic benefits can be realized when implementing lumped dispersion mapping in new 40Gbitss RZ-DPSK terrestrial links, while incurring a relatively low performance penalty.
