Abstract

We the study limitations to error-free transmission distance as set by noise accumulation and nonlinear pulse interactions in dispersion-managed N×40Gbit/s transmission systems with either distributed backward Raman amplification or lumped erbium-doped fiber amplifiers. Significant performance improvement is achievable with Raman amplification.
