Abstract

We propose an advantageous dispersion-management scheme for wavelength-division-multiplexed soliton transmission in which optimal launch points are obtained whose locations are independent of the fibers' dispersion parameters. Inasmuch as using such optimal launch points minimizes dispersively shed radiation, it is possible to optimize the transmission simultaneously in several different channels. For the particular case of a two-step dispersion map we demonstrate that this result can be achieved by proper choice of the fiber lengths.
