Abstract

Ultra-long-haul transmission at distances greater than 10,000 km is investigated for 112 Gb/s PM-QPSK signals using span lengths of 75 km and 100 km and all-Raman amplification. Two different ultra-low loss and large effective area optical fibers are studied. We demonstrate a reach length of 10,200 km for a 40 channel system using a fiber with effective area 112 μm2 with 100 km spans, and a reach length of 13,288 km for a system with 75 km spans using a fiber with effective area of 134 μm2.
