1 February 1992 Feasibility demonstration of transoceanic EDFA transmission systems (Invited Paper)

We have demonstrated the feasibility of transoceanic fiber amplifier systems using an experimental technique that measures bit error rates in a circulating loop. We have achieved a transmission distance of 9,000 km at 5 Gb/s and 21,000 km at 2.4 Gb/s using a non-retum-to-zero pseudo-random data pattern. The bit rate distance product of the 2.4 Gb/s result was 51 Tb-km/sec.
