The article focuses on the potential of dispersion-tolerant transmission to become popular in the field of telecommunication. The said system is useful in the transition of telecommunication companies to 10 Gbits per second network. It is also significant in the implementation of reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexers. Dispersion tolerance has many applications.
