Paper Abstract

In this paper we investigate the maximum unrepeatered and uncompensated transmission on standard single mode fiber (SSMF) with single-sideband (SSB) modulation. To increase the optical signal to noise ratio (OSNR) we use a backward pumping Raman source. With the combination of both the bandwidth reduced modulation scheme and the OSNR improvement with Raman amplification we can enlarge the error-free uncompensated and unrepeatered transmission length for SSB modulation up to 200km.
