Time/polarization-division multiplexed optical solitons are successfully transmitted at 80 Gb/s over an 80 km dispersion-shifted single-mode-fiber. The 80 Gb/s optical pulse trains are generated by optically multiplexing 10 Gb/s gain-switched pulse trains. The transmitted solitons are demultiplexed with a polarization beam splitter and two intensity-mod-.
