An analytical investigation is made of the asymptotic propagation properties of pulses evolving from nonsoliton initial conditions in an optical-fiber communication system. Explicit analytical results are obtained for the characteristic parameters of the asymptotically emerging soliton as well as of the accompanying decaying nonsoliton part. The importance of the dispersively decaying part of the pulse for a soliton-based optical-fiber communication system is especially emphasized.
