High speed optical transmission in the 1310 nm window might have a potential for ACCESS and METRO applications considering the restricted distances and the virtual absence of dispersion related system penalties. On the other hand Four-Wave Mixing (FWM) is expected to play a major role in WDM transmission. The effects of FWM has been evaluated in a four channel 10 Gbit/s WDM experiment with 100 GHz channel spacing over 100 km Standard Single Mode Fibre employing semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOA’s) as a booster, in-line and preamplifier. Successful suppression of FWM penalties was achieved by using an unequal spaced channel allocation scheme.
