We present various approaches to the optimization of optical fiber lines and discuss the ranges of validity of such methods. An effective scheme for upgrading of existing transmission lines using dispersion-management with optimization of the pre- and postcompensating fiber is examined. The theory and numerical methods are illustrated in application to the Upgrade of a specific installed Deutsche Telekom fiber line.
