Periodic-group-delay (PGD) dispersion-compensation modules were recently proposed as mechanisms to alleviate collision-induced timing shifts in dispersion-managed (DM) systems. Frequency and timing shifts in quasi-linear DM systems with PGDs were obtained, and it is shown that significant reductions are achieved when even a small fraction of the total dispersion is compensated for by PGDs.
