Different schemes of dispersion management for cascaded transmission systems composed of standard monomode fibers (SMFs) and dispersion compensating fibers have been studied considering the most essential boundary conditions for practical network design. Alternating ordering of the compensation sections is found to improve considerably the eye opening penalty for high amplifier spacings of 120 km.
