ABSTRACT
Focuses on the next-generation nonzero dispersion-shifted fiber (NZ-DSF). Key fiber attributes that can be balanced to achieve optimum system performance in the next generation of NZ-DSF; What would negatively impact the dispersion slope; Benefit from the 50-gigahertz compatibility of the next-generation NZ-DSF.
