Summary: 
The chromatic dispersion limitation for the longspan high-speed transmission using a LiNbO3 Mach-Zehnder modulator was estimated by computer simulation techniques taking account of the chirping effect in the modulator. The simulation result shows that the allowable chromatic dispersion to satisfy the 10% eye closure is around 10,000 ps/nm at 2.5 Gbit/s.
