Abstract

The system design strategy of basing soliton transmission on the signal frequency sliding technique is discussed while considering amplitude noise and timing jitter. The dependence of system performance on various parameters associated with signal frequency sliding are investigated at given bit rates and transmission distances; the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) due to amplitude noise is theoretically estimated. These estimated values are well supported by the results of recirculating loop experiments at 10 Gb/s. The total SNR is then maximized by optimizing the fiber dispersion, through the tradeoff between the effect of amplitude noise and that of timing jitter.
