The absolute accuracy of modeling a high bit rate optical transmitter-receiver test-bed by using moment generating functions is investigated with extensive system measurements and component characterizations. We achieved a 0.5-dB average optical signal-to-noise ratio accuracy for a 10-Gb/s return-to-zero fiber-optics test bed. The methodology shown here can be very useful for both efficient and accurate component or system engineering.
