Abstract
This article presents, for the first time, the derivation of approximate analytical formulae for the probability density function and the cumulative density function of the optical signal-to-noise ratio variation in optical local and metropolitan area networks due to the weakly polarization-dependent gain of cascaded semiconductor optical amplifiers. The cumulative density function is used to calculate the outage probability and derive specifications for the maximum allowable value of polarization-dependent gain per semiconductor optical amplifier in order to achieve a given network size.
