Abstract

The feasibility of 1Tbit/s transoceanic systems based on in-line optical regeneration of 40Gbit/s channels is numerically investigated. The roles of fiber dispersion, fiber mode area, and channel and regenerator spacings are analyzed, and the corresponding operating ranges for error-free transmission are determined. The results represent a first step in designing multi-terabit-per-second global transmission systems based on realistic components and parameters.
