Computer simulation is used to evaluate the chromatic dispersion limitations for both various coherent lightwave transmission systems and direct-detection on-off keying (OOK) systems. The results show that for a 2-dB dispersion penalty the maximum modulation rate ranges from 5 to 9 Gb/s for systems operating at 1.55 μm with 15 ps/km-nm of chromatic dispersion and 100 km of fiber. The effect is less severe for OOK systems and most severe in coherent detection systems. Simulation results are in agreement with a available experimental data
