We demonstrate a novel broadband first-order pump which enables forward-propagated distributed Raman amplification by mitigating RIN-related penalty and reducing ASE noise. This allows a minimum 25% increase in reach for 1Tb/s DP-QPSK WDM transmission, compared with other commercially available pumps.
