Abstract

15 Tb/s unrepeatered transmission is achieved over 409.6 km (68.2 dB) of large effective area fiber using forward and backward distributed Raman amplification and a remotely-pumped erbium-doped optical amplifier. This result provides a record capacity-reach product of 6.14 Pb/s-km over a single fiber type. We also demonstrate channel growth from 10 to 150 waves within 61 nm amplification bandwidth.
