    In this letter we show that when IP traffic is loaded directly over WDM-based networks, the burstiness of IP packets can have significant effects on the network performance through its influence on the fiber nonlinear effects, mainly the four-wave mixing effect provided the fiber input light power is high, the frequency spacing is narrow and IP traffic load is heavy.
