Dispersion-managed solitons with in-line all-optical regeneration are shown to be subject to amplitude and timing-jitter instabilities. We identify and discuss the different natures of these instabilities by means of a linear stability analysis, which is in good agreement with the full numerical solutions of the governing equations. Stable pulse propagation can be achieved through appropriate choices of dispersion map and pulse energy.
