Abstract: The basis of my presentation is described in [R. Driben and B.A. Malomed, "Split-step solitons in long fiber links", Optics Communications 185, 439-456 (2000)]. There was considered a fiber-optical link consisting of alternating dispersive and nonlinear segments, which are separated by a large distance. The existance of solitons with some attractive features for optical communications was discovered in this model. Further,there was also studied a behavior of split-step solitons in WDM systems with multichannel transmission.
