The aim of this paper is to analyze the nonlinear impairments that limit the performance of wavelength division multiplexing network for fiber to the home applications. The nonlinear phenomena in optical fiber consists carrier induced phase modulation, fourwave mixing (FWM), stimulated Raman scattering (SRS), stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS). Out of these fourwave mixing, stimulated Raman scattering and amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) are dominant for long-haul commercial applications. These effects decay the performance of the system which is present in the network. In this analysis we modeled a node that is present in wavelength division multiplexed network for fiber to the home (FTTH) applications. This analysis proves that by decreasing the cross-talk, noise generated by the effects system performance improved and also shows the superiority of the destination initiated reservation protocol from the other reservation protocols.
