Title: Optical performance monitoring using artificial neural networks trained with eye-diagram parameters
Published: January 01, 2009
Abstract: We developed artificial neural network models to simultaneously identify three separate impairments that can degrade optical channels, namely optical signal-to-noise ratio, chromatic dispersion, and polarization mode dispersion. The neural networks were trained with parameters derived from eye diagrams to create models that can predict levels of concurrent impairments. This method provides a means of monitoring optical performance with diagnostic capabilities.
