Paper Abstract

Based on an analytical model which is verified by numerical simulations, we study the influence of the dispersion map on XPM induced signal degradations in long-haul WDM systems for different fibre types. Distributed undercompensation is shown to be an optimum choice for 10 Gb/s per channel transmission. Statistical studies of map variations confirm, that moderate deviations from the optimum dispersion map further reduce the XPM limited reach. For transmission over standard single-mode fibre, XPM generated in the dispersion compensating fibers which are required for a compensation of the large dispersion of the transmission fiber may impose a stringent limitation for terrestric ultra-long haul systems.
