Abstract

Experimental field transmissions of solitons at 10Gbit/s over 2000km have been successfully demonstrated using part of the Tokyo metropolitan optical loop network. The network is composed of conventional dispersion-shifted 200 core optical fibre cable which was not originally intended for soliton transmission. However, with the dispersion-allocated soliton transmission technique, an error-free 13ps soliton data train was successfully transmitted over 2000km. The power penalty at a BER of 10-10 was 3.1dB.
