A novel re-timing, re-amplifying, and re-shaping (3R) regeneration system is proposed to process multiple WDM (wavelength-division-multiplexing) channels simultaneously. Its re-timing capability is investigated by both simulation and experiment with polarization-scrambling method at 10 Gb/s bit rate. Jitter tolerance up to 0.8 UIpp is demonstrated with BER improvement and floor breaking ability.
