Soliton is a special kind of wave packet that travels distortion less over long distances. It is a pulse able to maintain its shape and width due to compensation of Self Phase Modulation (SPM) process which is a non-linear effect based on refractive index variation and Group Velocity Dispersion (GVD) process which is a linear effect. For long range communication, soliton pulses are very suitable as the pulse width remain constant over the entire transmission distance. It eliminates the need to
