We report on the evaluation of the performance of the Mediterranean Very Large Volume Neutrino Telescope, KM3NeT. We present results of our studies concerning the capability of the telescope in detecting/discovering galactic (steady point sources) and extragalactic, transient (Gamma Ray Bursts) high energy neutrino sources as well as measuring ultra high energy diffuse neutrino fluxes. The discovery potential of the neutrino telescope is evaluated for several detector configurations assuming various environmental parameters.
