Abstract
A statistical design methodology for fiber optic long haul systems is presented. Based on actual data, the methodology improves the repeater spacings by 27% at 1300 nm and over 28% at 1550 nm. Our analysis is applied to 810 Mb/s transmission systems. It is expected that the repeater spacings for the new gigabit systems that MCI is currently installing will also increase in the same proportion as data becomes available. In addition, new generation LID splicers have been introduced and are expected to yield further repeater spacings.
