In order to meet the increasing demand on high data rate in the backbone optical networks, we choose offset QAM Nyquist Wavelength Division Multiplexing (OQAM N-WDM) as the technique to increase the spectral efficiency (SE) of fiber-optic WDM transmission systems. To get intersymbol interference (ISI)-free transmission, root-raisedcosine (RRC) pulses are used in the transmitter. To get interchannel interference (ICI) free transmission, OQAM is employed as modulation scheme enabling the multiplexing of the users’ channels with a spacing equal to the symbol rate and thus achieving the highest SE. The performance is evaluated for this system propagating over a linear chromatic dispersion (CD) channel. Simulation results show that the required optical SNR (ROSNR) at BER of 10-3 for backto- back connection of the transmitter and receiver meets the theoretical value of OSNR for QPSK transmission i.e. ROSNR = 13.3 dB.
