Jitter accumulation is examined in a 122 optical regenerator line of a 4758 km submarine cable. Accumulated jitter at the 122nd regenerator is less than 3.6rms at a line bit rate 445.837 Mb/s using a 2231 pseudorandom signal. With a 2151 PN signal, obtained jitter saturates at about the 60th regenerator. These results agree with theoretical jitter accumulation estimations for PN pattern signals.
