Q-factor and BER is one of the most important factors that limiting the transmission distance in optical communication systems. In order to transmit signals over long distances, it is necessary to have a low BER and high Q-factor within the fiber. The main advantage of optical amplifiers is that the optical signals to be directly amplified optically without any conversion, Here Semiconductor Optical Amplifier (SOA) used as the fiber amplifier with WDM system. This paper is to implement the SOA in WDM system and analyzed the performance in terms of BER and Q-factor by varying the bandwidth.
