Recently, most of the difficult problems which prevented the realization of soliton communication have been solved by using erbium-doped fiber optical amplifiers (EDFA's). In this paper, we describe how we were able to realize an actual soliton transmission system which utilizes lumped amplifiers instead of distributed amplifiers. A data transmission experiment at 10 Gb/s over 300 km is presented.
