An optical communication systems operating at multi-Gbit/s, such as 10 Gigabit Ethernet are becoming increasingly important in Local Area Networks (LANs) and Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs). The second generation 1310 nm wavelength domain is to realize high capacity, low cost and low complexity transmission. In this paper, a low complexity up to 200-Gb/s is analyzed over a 38-km standard single mode fiber transmission system in the 1310-nm wavelength domain. The system is based exclusively on semiconductor component without any form of dispersion compensation. The results showed that the 1310-nm wavelength domain can support low cost and low complexity high speed transmission.
