With more than 50 million km of standard single mode fiber installed worldwide, there was an increasing interest in 1310-nm optical amplification. Consistent developments in this field of optical amplification that have resulted in high-gain polarization-insensitive semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs) for optical pre-amplification and high saturation output power SOA boosters. Implementation of these devices in a repeaterless transmission system using a return-to-zero (RZ) data format is presented.
