Abstract

We investigate a 40 Gbit/s all-Raman amplified standard single mode fibre (SMF) transmission system with the mid-range amplifier spacing of 80-90 km. The impact of span configuration on double Rayleigh back scattering (DRBS) was studied. Four different span configurations were compared experimentally. A transmission distance of 1666 km in SMF has been achieved without forward error correcting (FEC) for the first time. The results demonstrate that the detrimental effects associated with high pump power Raman amplification in standard fibre can be minimised by dispersion map optimisation. © 2003 IEEE.
