One of the limitation factors on the achievable distance for long-haul nonlinear Return-to-Zero (RZ)-Gaussian pulse transmission on optical fiber links is timing jitter. Although it is well known that the dispersion management technique is very effective to reduce the timing jitter, comparisons among some dispersion management methods based on the timing jitter reduction have not been reported yet. In this paper, timing jitter reduction by some dispersion management methods in nonlinear RZ-Gaussian pulse transmission systems are discussed. Moreover, we will report that the amount of timing jitter at the receiver side drastically changes depending on the configuration of dispersion managed optical fiber transmission line.
