In optical system, the signal and additive noise for statistical properties of a variety of ways to evaluate the performance of the system is essential for the optimization. In this paper, performance analysis of spectrum-sliced optical system in the optical pre-amplifier in the receiver the received signal by including the error limits for the bit that is, the bit error rate (BER: Bit Error Rate) required to maintain the average optical power represents the number of photons per bit is included in this paper to digital form, noticeable signal the receiver to calculate the sensitivity of the method for the calculation was performed. The general strength of the transmission of the modulated signal and digital signal transmission was required for the comparison of optical power. As shown in Figure 3, the general strength of the digital signal transmission system for transmitting a modulated signal compared with the case is improved by at least 10dB.
