This paper reviews state-of-the-art technologies that will play important roles in terabit transmission systems. To take full advantage of fiber capacity, combined multiplexing of wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) and time division multiplexing (TDM) technologies is recommended. Not only device technologies, but also system-side viewpoints are emphasized in order to clarify the differences between TDM and WDM systems. Linear transmission and nonlinear ones, which includes optical soliton systems are also compared. This paper predicts that pursuing increased transmission capacity will result in more combined designs of detailed fiber dispersion and transmitted optical signal parameters.
