With the development of optical fiber communication system most telecommunication companies now prefer to use optical fiber transmission medium for higher information bandwidth. The design of such a system involves many aspects such as the type of source to be used, the kind of fiber to be employed and detector. The designer must select from a set of device components to meet a given set of system requirements, one of which is the power budget analysis. In this work, four different optical fiber communication links under limited attenuation condition were studied. The design parameters include; power budget analysis, maximum link length. A power margin greater than four decibel was obtained; this indicates a healthy margin of signal strength.

Keywords: Optical Networks, Fiber Optical Communication, Power Budget, Maximum link length
