The cross talk induced by soliton collision with a Raman effect in a lossless fiber is discussed. There are frequency-shift enhancements for the two colliding solitons in addition to the energy transfer. The maximum rate–distance product limited by energy depletion is obtained for the soliton-based wavelength-division-multiplexing system.
