We investigate the performance of Tbps transmissions using wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) technologies based on the 40 Gbps line rate. To find the optimum conditions, the transmission performance is theoretically evaluated for various fiber types. To confirm modeling, the transmission performance is experimentally measured for TWF transmissions over 85 and 342 km. Bit error rates (BERs) and eye-diagrams have been calculated and measured to investigate the system performance. All the channels have characteristics of error free transmission. The calculated BERs and eye-diagrams have a good agreement with the experimental results.
