The Future of Fiber Communications: Solitons in an All-Optical System

In an “all optical” fiber system—one without electronic repeaters—a single fiber could transmit as much as 100 Gbit/sec over thousands of kilometers. Such performance would be obtained by using optical gain to overcome fiber loss and by transmitting the signals as nonspreading, soliton pulses.
