Super C-Band DWDM EDFA

As the growing demand of data transmission capacity, Amonics’ Super C-band (C++ band) DWDM Erbium-doped Fiber Amplifier (EDFA) is the ideal solution that features Super C-band operating range, i.e. 1524nm to 1572nm, in which can support up to 120 wavelengths. The transmission capacity is increased by 50% comparing to the traditional C-band. The EDFA adopts the design of high-power pump laser and high-stability pump combiners, renowned for robustness in high power boosting. It provides flattened gain across the operating wavelength range and very low noise figure.

The turnkey microprocessor-controlled EDFAs provide illustrative alarms and status indicators. An integrated RS232 computer interface enables easy control, diagnostic functions and data acquisition.
