Abstract

The acoustic effect significantly increases the timing jitter of solitons and the bit-error rates in communication lines. We suggest the transmission of information with fixed-length blocks that contain an equal number of ones and zeros to suppress acoustically induced timing jitter. It is shown theoretically that this approach will significantly enhance the performance of systems with bit rates per channel higher than 20 Gbits/s.
