We have performed numerical and experimental optimization of dispersion-managed Wavelength Division Multiplexed (WDM) Return-to-Zero (RZ) transmission without in-line control at 40 Gbit/s per channel in symmetric dispersion maps using effective area enlarged positive dispersion fiber and reverse dispersion fiber. Our results show the feasibility of transmission over 2800 km without Forward Error Correction (FEC) and over 4500 km with 8 % FEC overhead. The results of numerical modeling are in good agreement with experimental data.
