We consider the effects of stimulated Raman scattering on ultrashort light pulses propagating in long-haul fiber transmission lines. We propose an efficient method for suppressing the soliton self-frequency shift by use of upshifted filters without any compromise in signal-to-noise ratio and with the pulse stability preserved.
