Dispersion-compensating modules that use higher-order-mode fiber to achieve simultaneous dispersion and dispersion-slope compensation of non-zero dispersion-shifted fiber (NZDSF) were considered. As a result, 40-Gbit/s-240 transmission across the entire C band of erbium amplifiers was achieved with no re-trimming of the compensation. By comparison, the use of conventional DCF resulted in an operating window of only a few nanometers.
