We demonstrate the potential to operate an installed undersea optical amplifier system at higher bit rates with only terminal modifications. Our results suggest acceptable transmission performance at data rates of up to 15.0 Gb/s using WDM techniques on an installed system designed to operate with a single NRZ channel at 2.5 Gb/s.
