Experimental results will be presented which demonstrate linear and nonlinear transmission over distances of up to 100km. The optical pulse source is a prototype packaged mode-locked semiconductor laser operating around 1560nm at a repetition rate of 8GHz. Both erbium-doped fibre amplification and Raman gain in the transmission fibre itself have been used to access the fibre nonlinearity. A model has been developed which accurately predicts the transmission over 100km by including the chirp on the signal laser. This model has been used to compare the performance of discrete and distributed fibre amplifiers in this application over transmission distances of up to 1000km.
