This paper describes the wavelength division multiplexing technology for the long-haul optical communication system, especially for the undersea cable system. At first, the present WDM technology for the undersea cable system is reviewed briefly. After that, some experiments using compensation of the dispersion slope of the transmission fiber are discussed as future technical options of undersea systems with over 100 Gbit/s capacity.
