In this paper the characterization of the impact of physical layer impairments on quality of transmission of optical fiber transmission systems had been demonstrated analytically and verified numerically with simulation results. Linear and nonlinear impairments in optical links accurately characterized with analytical modeling techniques but on the counterpart it is cost efficient to characterize the impact of these impairments using empirical techniques which provides real time information of these impairments to digital signal processing algorithms used in their compensation to ensure high throughput of the optical transmission systems.
