Theoretical analysis of a 100-km-long transparent germanosilicate distributed erbium-doped optical fiber has been carried out. It is shown that the optimum signal wavelength is 1.554 μm both considering the noise performance and the necessary pump power for achieving unity gain when the distributed erbium-doped fibers are pumped at 1.48 μm
