Transmission experiments performed on a 3800-km subsegment of the TAT-12 optically amplified submarine cable system have recently shown the meai\s for 5-Gbit/s transmission over a total concatenated fiber length of 15,200 km. Designed to connect Europe and America (Fig. 1), TAT-12 will be the first installed transatlantic optically amplified submarine cable system.
