We propose the design of an all-optical 2R regenerator capable of handling multiple wavelength-division-multiplexed channels simultaneously. It extends the known concept of off-center filtering of self-phase-modulation-broadened signal spectra. The novel feature of the proposed device is a dispersion map that strongly suppresses interchannel impairments. The map employs several sections of nonlinear fiber with high normal dispersion, separated by dispersion compensators with spectrally periodic group delay. The results of our numerical simulations indicate the feasibility of such a multichannel regenerator.
