Transmission performances of 6,000km RZ-DPSK system using dispersion flattened fiber (DFF) and non-zero dispersion shifted fiber (NZDSF) were theoretically investigated and compared. Both fibers showed similar performance when the repeater output power was small, but the DFF showed superior performance in the higher repeater output power regime. The result shows that the merit of the DFF is fully utilized when the repeater output power is high enough.
