80 Gbit/s soliton signals have been successfully transmitted for the first time over 500 km. The soliton source was a mode-locked fibre laser and a planar lightwave circuit was used for stable optical multiplexing from 10 Gbit/s to 80 Gbit/s. A nonlinear loop mirror was used for demultiplexing, in which unequal amplitude solitons were used for clock extraction.
