To summarize, we have calculated the transmission capacity and power budget performance of optimally designed spectrally sliced networks that employ optical preamplifier receivers. The theoretical models used in this evaluation do not assume the Gaussian approximation, but do assume ideal rectangular filter shapes. Although experiments to verify these results remain to be done, the results are sufficiently promising to indicate that spectrally sliced systems with optical preamplifier receivers may be a encouraging technique for both local-access and long-haul applications
