We estimate the performances of future long haul and high bit rate systems based on fluoride glass fibre technology, taking into account non linear effects. It is shown that capacity links of 1000 (Gbit/s)2.km at 2.5 μm can be realized, either with direct or coherent detection, if total attenuation of cabled fibre can be lowered down to 0.03 to 0.05 dB/km. Guidelines for the design of the fibre are given.
