Paper Abstract

As the requirement of transmitted power and the fiber span increase, the transmission fiber is no longer a completely transparent medium with respect to the system performances. The systems are affected by the presence of dispersion and non-linear fiber optics including SBS, SRS and SPM in the case of single transmission channel. In cases of WDM systems, FWM, XPM, and SRS will also participate in degrading the system. We discuss these effects manifested in the system parameters such as CSO, CTB and CNR. We also discuss options and demonstrations of numerous countermeasures rendering better system performance with drastically reduced degradation.
