Group-velocity dispersion (GVD) compensation in in-line amplifier systems is evaluated from the viewpoint of improving the transmission distance. The nonlinear Schrodinger equation, which simulates signal propagation in optical fibers, is numerically evaluated to clarify the optimum configuration for GVD compensation. It is shown that the optimum amount of GVD compensation is about 100% of the GVD experienced by the transmitted signal. The optimum compensation interval is found to be a function of the bit rate, signal power, and dispersion parameter. For dispersion parameter values ranging from about -0.1 ps/nm/km to -10 ps/nm/km, and an amplifier noise figure of about 6 dB, the optimum compensation configuration can eliminate the GVD from in-line amplifier systems, thus improving transmission distances to those limited by self-phase modulation and higher-order GVD
