Paper Abstract

The interaction of fiber dispersion and nonlinearities enable optimal regimes of operation of amplified optical communication systems that use XFP transceivers. System performance is described using OSNR tolerances for OC-192 and OTU2 modulated signals. An improvement in OSNR of 3-dB is achieved when allowing approximately -500ps/nm residual dispersion in the link which enabled about 45dB link budget.
