We performed numerical simulations to demonstrate that the Rayleigh scattering – stimulated Brillouin scattering cooperative process can lead to generation of second-order SBS in standard optical fibers. Recently published experimental observations of low-threshold second-order SBS in 4.4-km-long optical fiber are well reproduced by our model.
