We perform a proof-of-concept implementation of the massively parallel algorithm [P. M. Lushnikov, Opt. Lett. 27, 939 (2002)] for simulation of dispersion-managed wavelength-division-multiplexed optical fiber systems. Linear scalability of the algorithm with the number of computer cores is demonstrated. Exact result on the accuracy of the implemented algorithm is found analytically and confirmed numerically as well as it is compared with the accuracy of the standard split-step algorithm.
