Abstract

The authors show, for the first time, the feasibility of upgrading existing transmission systems, by straight-forward means, to 40Gbit/s through 617km and 80Gbit/s through 412km of standard singlemode fibre, since 10Gbit s-based WDM transmission was achieved without gain-flattening the commercial optical amplifiers and without intermediate filtering. Dispersion management was performed by dispersion compensating fibre units.
