Abstract: The limitations to the maximum transmission capacity in a long distance soliton transmission system with sliding guiding filters are studied. Shown is that sliding the center frequency of the filters may substantially stabilize the soliton even in the case of strong resonance overlap with the radiation that originates from the periodic amplification. This permits a considerable reduction of both the minimum pulse width and pulse-to-pulse separation in the transmission.
