Nonlinearities implanted by refractive index and scattering degrade the performance of optical networks. In this paper, FWM (Four Wave Mixing) has been analyzed for four different channels with 10 nm spacing. Due to the presence of resonant frequency, FWM interface of different channels in WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) hinders the performance of the system. The system is affected by nonlinear cross talk. A system with the bandwidth of 10 Gbps has been investigated using External Modulation and an optical rectangle filter as a key parameter to improve the system performance with respect to FWM effect
