Abstract

We propose a passive all-optical 2R regeneration method for WDM (N×40 Gbit/s) dispersion-managed RZ transmission based on specially designed WDM guiding filters and in-line nonlinear optical loop mirrors. By system optimisation, the feasibility of 150 GHz-spaced × 16 channel 25000 km transmission over standard fibre is numerically demonstrated.
