The combined use of S-band and Raman ampliﬁcation to cost-effectively increase the capacity of C+L-band transmission system is assessed. We show that Raman ampliﬁcation improves and ﬂattens the optical performance in the three bands, potentially reducing the complexity of routing and wavelength assignment algorithms.
