Abstract

In dispersion managed high bit rate systems, the importance of correctly choosing the pulse launch position is investigated. Using this technique, error free transmission has been achieved of a 40 Gbit/s 231-1 nonlinear RZ PRBS over 1160 km in a dispersion compensated standard fiber propagation experiment with a 75 km standard fiber span.
