The Gordon-Haus limit can be partially overcome with the combination of in-line filtering and receiver dispersion compensation. Theoretical analysis leads to an analytical jitter calculation and its predictions are in good agreement with the corresponding simulated values. It is shown that even if the receiver dispersion compensation technique becomes less efficient with narrow filters and is limited by pulse broadening, an optimum choice of system parameters allows an effective reduction of the Gordon-Haus jitter by a factor of 3.5 for trans-Pacific links with a penalty-free transmission.
