A 29 – 1 pseudorandom-binary-sequence soliton signal has been transmitted experimentally over one million km for the first time with no degradation in the bit error rates. The synchronous modulator was driven by a timing clock signal extracted from the transmitting data signal. These results mean that it is possible to send soliton data signals over unlimited distances through the use of soliton control in the time and frequency domains.
