A 640-Gbit/s optical time division multiplexed signal was successfully transmitted over a 92-km zero-dispersion-flattened transmission line. The transmission line consisted of single-mode fiber, dispersion-shifted fiber, and reverse dispersion fiber. By using reverse dispersion fiber instead of dispersion slope compensation fiber, we were able to increase the transmission distance from 63 to 92 km because reverse dispersion fiber has less polarization mode dispersion and a flatter dispersion profile.
