We elaborate on a recently proposed model of the temporal dependence of polarization mode dispersion in long fiber links. We evaluate the probability that a channel of a wavelength-division multiplexed system never incurs an outage, and the range of frequency over which the parameters that characterize the temporal statistics of the differential group delay are correlated.
