The effect of distributed Raman amplification (DRA) on the optical signal to noise ratio (OSNR) of an all optical network (AON) is examined by analyzing two types of node isolated principal (NIP). Based on the parameters used in calculation, it is found that in the first case of NIP, the OSNR of a signal passing through such AON can be improved by about 8 dB compared with no DRA. Whereas in the second case of NIP, the OSNR of the signal can be reduced by 11 dB. This kind of phenomena is analyzed and attributed to the dependence of noise figure of amplification system on the way of the active amplification utilization.
