Abstract

We present an analytical model for performance of a transmission system in which Raman amplification is employed. We perform a network value analysis on the basis of that model and show that use of Raman amplification in 40-Gbit/s dispersion-managed systems can realize a savings in capital expenditure of ~20% compared with erbium-doped fiber amplifiers for a full network build of a large U.S. carrier.
