Multilevel optical intensity modulation high in accuracy is performed using electro-absorption optical modulators. There is provided a plurality of EA modulators connected in series in a path of an optical signal from a light source, and a multilevel-coded modulated optical signal is generated by modulating an intensity of an input optical signal from the light source based on a modulation signal using the EA modulators. Each of the EA modulators is switched between an ON state and an OFF state of optical absorption in accordance with the modulation signal. Regarding an extinction ratio of the ON state to the OFF state in each of the EA modulators, the EA modulators have respective values difference from each other, and are arranged in ascending order of the extinction ratio from the light source side.
