The dynamic behavior of ultrahigh-bit-rate solitons is studied. We predict the radiated energy from a soliton by employing perturbation theory. The process of loss cancellation is analyzed, and it is shown that distributed erbium-doped fibers, tens of soliton periods long, provide an improved transmission compared with that for lumped amplification.
