We theoretically analyzed the Gordon–Haus timing jitter in a periodically dispersion-compensated optical transmission system as a result of upgrading a preinstalled uniform-dispersion system. We show that the enhanced peak power for a large dispersion difference in the period reduces the frequency shift induced by noise, and a proper setting of the receiver position further reduces the timing jitter.
