The role of interaction in causing errors in optical soliton transmission was studied. Two solitons propagating under a filter-control scheme was considered and the timing jitter caused by spontaneous-emission noise and enhanced by attraction between solitons was described. Results showed the bit-error rate as a function of system parameters, timing, initial distance and the phase difference between solitons.
