Paper Abstract

With increasing line rates system tolerances due to both, chromatic dispersion and dispersion slope, become more restrictive. By means of numerical simulations we investigate the influence of temperature fluctuations in cascaded multi-section dispersion-compensated standard single-mode fiber SMF based transmission systems. Eye opening penalty (EOP) for different modulation formats - non-return-to-zero NRZ as well as return-to-zero RZ with duty cycles varying from 0.2 to 0.6 and for different signal power levels varying from -9 to +3 dBm at a line rate of 160 Gbit/s are calculated. Performance degradation due to temperature-induced dispersion variations is investigated for three different scenarios: a) the temperature of the installed terrestrial fiber-optic cable changes, b) the temperature of the temperature-controlled indoor dispersion compensating module DCM changes, c) combined effects.
