How to simulate a whole multi-Gpbs serial channel including optical tranceivers and fibre?

Say I want to design a 10Gbps serial link like this:


Virtex-6 GTH Tx --> PCB trace/via --> E/O --> MM/SM fibre --> O/E --> PCB trace/via --> Virtex-6 GTH Rx


How to simulate this whole channel in HyperLynx SI GHz? How to model properly the optical tranceiver? What is the alternative simulation solution for this channel if the whole channel simulation is not possible?
