In order to cope with these issues, optical amplifiers
are used before and after the optical fiber cable.
Professor Peter Andrekson, who leads optical communication research at Chalmers University of Technology said that the demonstration shows how amplifiers can 'significantly, and simultaneously' reduce the impact of noise accumulation--originating from optical amplifiers
in the link--and of signal distortion from nonlinear effects in the transmission fibre.

Three multi-core optical amplifiers
fabricated by NEC, KDDI Research, NTT, and Furukawa were inserted at each end of three spans in order to compensate the signal attenuation.
On the other hand, Forzati, Berntson, and M[grados]artensson (2008) demonstrate that asynchronous phase modulation increases transmission for the NRZ-OOK system in ultra-long distance WDM systems; in the same line of analysis, we find Alzate and Cardenas (2011), who highlight advanced modulation formats for the transmission of 40/100Gb/s, compared to the standard technology of 10Gb/s, on optical fiber in short and long distance, as well as some degradations caused by: noise produced by optical amplifiers
, chromatic dispersion, PMD and effects of fiber nonlinearities.
Xtera supplies both un-repeatered and repeatered systems, using its high performance optical amplifiers
to deliver traffic directly inland to cities.
Established in 1998 and based in the UK (Harold Wood, Essex) and the US (Allen, Texas), Xtera supplies un-repeatered and repeatered sub-sea systems, using high performance optical amplifiers
to carry data.
WDM and optical amplifiers
which are generally EDFAs are the key parameters of these systems.
A cascade of two optical amplifiers
were added to increase the power of the generated lines.
Because transferring of the optical signal over great distances leads to its attenuation, the transmission path contains optical amplifiers
. In optical communication the EDFA fibre amplifiers, SOA semiconductor amplifiers, or amplifiers based on the Raman effect are the most widely used ones [2-4].
The step and gradient refractive index profile and Rhodamine B, Rhodamine 6G, and Oxazine 4 optical amplifiers
were presented [27-30].
