Abstract
In this paper we analyze by simulation a measured amplified single channel 40 Gb/s communication system composed by standard fiber. Two different commercial simulation tools are used to perform the calculations. Experimental results were reproduced in such distinct simulation environments that allowed calibrating and predicting the system performance when new parameter settings are taken into evaluation. The simulation results indicate that at least 10 dB less power is required to achieve the same BER simply using an optimized receiver. That result enabled to have the same BER and also allowed removing the EDFA. Since one device such as an EDFA could be eliminated of the layout, with less optical power being required in the receiver, fiber spans as short as lengths that eliminate the dispersion compensation have been considered.
