Combination of programmed chirp and dispersion profiles produced a solitonlike nonlinear pulse with a stationary structure (quasi-soliton). The quasi-soliton has more attractive properties than those of a soliton because of its reduced interaction and smaller peak power than a soliton and allows ~100-Gbit / s transmission over a 125-dispersion distance with reasonable power.
