In one embodiment, a method for performing nonlinearity compensation on a dispersion-managed optical signal that was transmitted over an optical communication link, the method including virtually dividing the communication link into a plurality of steps, performing lumped dispersion compensation on a recieved optical signal to obtain a waveform upon which digital backward propagation (DBP) can be performed, performing DBP by performing dispersion compensation and nonlinearity compensation for each step, and generating an estimate of the transmitted signal base upon the performed DBP.
