We analyse a 2R regenerator using nonlinear optical loop mirror and a 3R regenerator employing nonlinearly enhanced amplitude modulator in 40 Gbit/s wavelength- division multiplexed networks based on standard fibre (SMF). Characterization of one- (600 km of SMF) and two-step regeneration is presented.
