Paper Abstract

A model is developed and experimentally verified that allows the accurate prediction of the Bit Error Rate performance of a fiber optic link in the presence of a large number of noise sources. The model may be used as a guide for stress testing of a low Bit Error Rate link to reveal the characteristics of the noises with a much reduced test time compared to previous methods.
