Paper Abstract

We examine the influence of the third-order filter contribution on soliton propagation in a system with sliding-frequency guiding filters. The soliton loss in a system with up-sliding than it is in a system with down- sliding. We derive also an analytical expression for the variance of the timing jitter of a soliton transmission system using sliding-frequency guiding filters, taking into account the third-order filter term. The variance of timing jitter is significantly increased by the sliding action. As a consequence of the third-order filter contribution, the timing jitter is lower in a system with down-sliding than it is in a system with up-sliding at the same sliding rate.
