We show that soliton regeneration through synchronous modulation reduces both amplitude and optical phase noise in a squeezinglike fashion. However, control of optical phase noise is found not to be sufficient to permit error-free phase-shift-keyed soliton transmission, as confirmed by numerical simulations.
