Q Factor Analysis

Greetings. I want to learn how to analyze BER diagrams. I understand the eye diagram. There are lots of articles on the internet about it. But I can’t find any source about Q factor and how to analyze it.
I am currently using OptiSystem 17.1 and the attachment includes 2 BER diagrams of my TWDM PON system designs that I have nothing to commentate. Any help appreciated.

      Dear Ekrem,
      You may right click on the BER Analyzer component to access the properties window. Then select Help to access the datasheet, where you will find are theoretical information on the process used to calculate the BER and Q-factor.

      Thank you for the response, sir. I found the datasheet. I will study it hoping to learn more about Q-factor.
