The access network plays a major role in meeting the rapidly growing demand for higher bandwidth by transporting traffic from the long-haul network to the end users. The distribution network is part of access network that carries traffic to and from the customer premises to the feeder network. Distribution networks are usually passive with short span length. One of the major impairments in a distribution network is crosstalk which represents leaking of signal from one channel to another. Crosstalk along with various types ofnoise at the receiver degrades the quality of signal. This paper presents a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the effects of crosstalk on signal quality and system performance. The output power, worst case crosstalk, and system performance in terms of Q value are calculated for different device parameters and network configuration to evaluate the impact of crosstalk on the quality of signal and system.
