The advancement in optical communication by the emergence of soliton pulse propagation with its distinct feature of retaining its shape through long distance transmission, have brought in lot of interest and applications in the field of optics. The hurdle to major advancement was the usage of expensive regenerators which has been replaced by a fiber amplifier, EDFA. This paper discusses and analyses soliton propagation along with an EDFA, to negotiate fiber losses. The usage of dispersion compensating fiber, to compensate the dispersion effect, is also studied.
