This paper proposes a statistical design approach for Non-Return-to-Zero (NRZ) 40 Gbit/s systems with Forward Error Correction (FEC); the approach considers Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD). We introduce a fluctuating PMD emulator to experimentally clarify FEC performance in PMD-limited systems. By using the proposed design approach, and considering the FEC relaxation effect on PMD, the maximum transmission distance of an NRZ 40 Gbit/s system without PMD compensation is estimated as several hundreds of km depending on the number of cable concatenations per link and the probability threshold of system acceptance.
