The authors investigate the behavior of multichannel signals in a high-density wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) system with the consideration of stimulated Raman scattering. A parameter to evaluate the depth of Raman crosstalk is provided, and the transmission distance limitation imposed by Raman crosstalk is analyzed. To extend the system transmission distance, a post-transmitter fiber Raman amplifier is used. The allocation of signal channels on the pump gain profile is discussed. It is found that there exists an optimum pump power which results in a maximum amplifier gain. The example shows that the transmission distance limitation imposed by Raman crosstalk can be extended by 20 km for a 30-channel system with 0.25-dB/km fiber loss
