We propose a scheme for efficient power control in 100G optical transponders through reduction of the length of electronic chromatic dispersion compensation filters, according to the network traffic fluctuations. Transmission rate reduction is achieved by symbol retransmission, while maintaining system parameters unchanged, to avoid increased complexity. Power savings offered by the scheme are estimated.
