We experimentally demonstrate simultaneous all-optical regeneration of two 160 Gbit/s WDM channels in a single HNLF using fiber optical parametric amplification. Receiver sensitivities at a BER of 10-9 are improved by about 2.1 dB and 4.9 dB for the two channels, respectively. The BER is not degraded by the presence of a second channel.
