Transmission at 1 Gbit/s over 7.4 km of 1300 nm optimised single-mode fibre has been demonstrated using a standard, 1300 nm edge-emitting LED with 150 MHz 3 dB bandwidth and a PINFET receiver. Computer simulation was used to accurately assess each of the system degradations: LED rise/fall, extinction ratio, dispersion penalty and receiver noise.
