Abstract

Numerical optimization is performed of the 40-Gb/s dispersion-managed (DM) soliton transmission system with in-line synchronous intensity modulation. Stability of DM soliton transmission results from a combined action of dispersion, nonlinearity, in-line filtering, and modulation through effective periodic bandwidth management of carrier pulses. Therefore, analysis of the multiparametric problem is typically required. A two-stage time-saving numerical optimization procedure is applied. At the first step, the regions of the stable carrier propagation are determined using theoretical models available for DM solitons, and system parameters are optimized. At the second stage, full numerical simulations are undertaken in order to verify the tolerance of optimal transmission regimes. An approach developed demonstrates feasibility of error-free transmission over 20 000 km in a transmission line composed of standard fiber and dispersion compensation fiber at 40 Gb/s.
