The frequency and timing shifts associated with dispersion-managed solitons in a wavelength-division multiplexed system are computed by the numerically efficient Poisson sum technique. Analytical formulas are attainable by use of this approach with a Gaussian approximation for the soliton. The results are favorably compared with known results for the frequency shift. The method also applies to quasi-linear return-to-zero transmission formats.
