Paper Abstract

We have demonstrated the feasibility of transoceanic fiber amplifier systems using an experimental technique that measures bit error rates in a circulating loop. We have achieved a transmission distance of 9,000 km at 5 Gb/s and 21,000 km at 2.4 Gb/s using a non-retum-to-zero pseudo-random data pattern. The bit rate distance product of the 2.4 Gb/s result was 51 Tb-km/sec.
