Abstract : Soliton communication lines are promising for high bit rate data transmission on long distances. Smith and Mollenauer experimentally discovered the effect of soliton pulse long-range interaction. We have explained the long-range interaction of solitons by electrostrictional excitation of radial acoustic modes of fiber and their subsequent influence on solitons. We have also shown that the excitation of the acoustic waves results in a considerable timing jitter of solitons and can limit the bit rate and distance of data transmission in soliton communication lines. However this effect requires a more detailed quantitative approach because of its significance for soliton communication lines.
