Impact of Environmental Influences on Multilevel Modulation Formats at the Signal Transmission in the Optical Transmission Medium

Rastislav Roka, Pavol Šalík


This paper is devoted to the analysis of environmental influences in the optical transmission medium and their impacts on multilevel modulation formats. An attention is focused on main features and characteristics of environmental negative influences of optical fibers. Consequently, principles for appropriate multilevel modulation formats are introduced together with block schemes representing their main functionalities. The created Simulink model for technologies and communications is verified for real conditions in the optical transmission medium. It can allow executing requested analysis for environmental influences on advanced multilevel modulation formats at the signal transmission. Finally, a comparison of considered multilevel modulations is introduced, using constellation diagrams, signal characteristics, eye diagrams and waterfall curves of individual signals.
