Bi-directional transmission of optical data over a single fiber reduces the first installed cost as well as the operational cost of DWDM systems. This paper discusses the special design issues, when a single amplifier and a single dispersion compensation module are used for both traffic directions. Results of loop transmission experiments over 5000 km of NZDSF are demonstrated.
