To understand the transmission limitation of multiple narrow single-sideband subcarrier-multiplexed (SSB/SCM) signals, this paper first presents a closed-form analysis to predict Mach-Zehnder intensity modulator-induced composite triple beat (CTB), and linear-fiber-dispersion-induced composite second-order (CSO) and CTB distortions. To combine SSB/SCM with dense-wavelength-division-multiplexing (DWDM) systems, analytical and numerical tools, which are not constrained by any wavelength spacing and modulation frequencies, are used to analyze cross-phase modulation-induced crosstalk. All the analytical and numerical results are verified by computer simulations. Several multichannel SSB/SCM/DWDM systems with transport capacities of 10 or 20 Gb/s per wavelength, with a wavelength spacing of 25, 50, and 100 GHz, are also studied in this paper to understand the fundamental transmission limitations.
