The throughput gains of extending the optical transmission bandwidth to the S+C+L-band are quantified using a Gaussian Noise model that accounts for inter-channel stimulated Raman scattering (ISRS). The impact of potential ISRS mitigation strategies, such as dynamic gain equalization and power optimization, are investigated.
