Forty Gb/s single-channel soliton transmission experiments using periodic dispersion compensation were conducted. The impact of the dispersion map on the transmission performance was experimentally investigated. The transmission performance was significantly varied with the dispersion map. The improvement of the transmission performance by the polarization division multiplexing, which reduced soliton-soliton interaction furthermore, was also confirmed. By using the polarization division multiplexing in the optimum dispersion map, 40 Gb/s single-channel transmission over 10 200 km has been successfully demonstrated without any active inline transmission control.
