Considering a numerical example, we analyse the performance of Return-to-Zero (RZ) Differential Phase Shift Keyed (DPSK) transmission when deployed in a large scale transmission system. It is shown that at high distances, RZ-DPSK performs well whilst being limited by nonlinear effects. We also show that when nonlinear effects become dominant, we can still estimate channel statistics to reasonable accuracy.
