Soliton evolution in optical fibers and all-optical soliton recovery with a nonlinear active loop mirror have been studied with view to applications in transmission systems having a high bit-rate–distance product. A 1.3-ps pulse is successfully transmitted over 111 soliton periods, reshaped, amplified, and transmitted another 111 soliton periods.
