Dynamic optical communication systems require fast assessment of the signal quality of the desired path through the network. This paper presents an analytical approach for describing the Q-factor due to linear (group velocity dispersion, noise, and polarization-mode dispersion) as well as the dominant nonlinear effects in 10-Gb/s nonreturn-to-zero ON-OFF keying transmission systems
