We consider two solitons propagating under a filter-control scheme and describe the timing jitter that is caused by spontaneous-emission noise and enhanced by attraction between solitons. We find the bit-error rate as a function of system parameters (filtering and noise level), timing, initial distance, and the phase difference between solitons.
