Paper Abstract

A four-channel soliton system design is described that represents an improvement on a previous study (Opt. Express, 2007). In that study, a bit-rate-length (BL) product in excess of 2.0×1015 baud/km from a dense-dispersion-managed (DDM) dual-soliton system was achieved through numerical experimentation. Similar to the dual-soliton design, a combination of polarization multiplexing and wavelength-division multiplexing is employed. Numerical experiments with four soliton channels, each carrying 80 Gb/s, are carried out over 10,000 km. As system parameters are optimized, the Q=6 threshold distance attained is 9150 km, yielding a BL product of 2.9×1015 baud/km.
