Great! In a simulation it can, but realistically of course there is always a source of distortion or noise. There can be distortion from the modulators which will give an unevenly spaced constellation because of the non-linearity of the mach zehnder modulators. There can also be noise introduced by the PIN photo-diodes at the receiver side etc..
