We analyze the effect of the third-order guiding filter term on soliton transmission in optical fibers. We find that this term causes a significant difference between the regimes of up-and down-sliding of filter frequency. In particular, the use of up-sliding requires less additional amplifier gain than down-sliding does, which is preferable in real systems.
