In designing optical transmission systems, it is important to determine length dependence of baseband bandwidth of optical fibers. A simple formula is proposed to estimate baseband bandwidth of an optical transmission line made of different fibers spliced together. Using the formula, cumulative bandwidth is predicted merely from the bandwidth for each individual fiber. The usefulness of the formula has been confirmed by experiments.
