We introduce the concept of noncoherent optical pulse discrimination from a coherent (or partially coherent) signal of the same energy using the phenomenon of soliton generation. The impact of randomization of the optical signal content on the observable characteristics of soliton generation is examined and quantified for the particular example of a rectangular pulse.
