This paper assesses the regenerative properties of nonlinear semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA)-based optical regenerators cascaded in high-speed transmission networks. It is shown that the fundamental condition that must be ensured to maintain optimum and constant regenerative properties along a chain of concatenated nonlinear optical regenerators is… CONTINUE READING
