We propose a novel method for effective simulation of optical fiber transmission system performance with nonlinear interaction between the amplified spontaneous emission noise and the modulated optical signal employing on–off keying. The method enables a standard analytical description of the receiver operation even when the detected optical field obeys non-Gaussian statistics with a substantial amount of nonlinear phase noise accumulated along the fiber link due to strong signal–noise interaction.
