An engineering approach based on an analytical model is used to design long-haul optical fiber communication link by the optimization of parameters, especially in optical fiber, which can constrain the number of optical channels as well as distances [1]. Considering industrial data such as ITU-G-652 standard (Corning R SMF-28™ [1]) and ITU-G-655 nonzero dispersion-shifted fiber (Corning LEAFR – large effective area fiber [1]), one can design the optical fiber transmission system in an optical network. Since the interaction of these parameters gives a large number of optimization/combination, computer-aided engineering approach is required to get accurate design [1–3] with less computation time in a precise engineering point of view. There are a number of computer-based Math lab programs and simulation tools for optical system design modeling. MATLAB and Simulink are packages in which simulation programs can be written by using different building blocks, tools, and functions. The simulation written by appropriate techniques/functions makes the integration of optical modules modeled at physical operating principle such as optical modulator with mathematical model that is required to solve fiber propagation equations. In this chapter, we have mentioned math lab codes used for the design of optical transmission for optical networks.
