The Multicom 1550nm CATV Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier (EDFA) is designed to amplify 1550nm optical signals to increase the optical transmission distance over fiber, and can be used in conjunction with the Multicom 1550nm optical transmitter. The product offering is flexible enough to perform in numerous upstream and downstream applications, including supertrunk transmission, hub interconnects, and 1310/1550 nm overlays.
All internal laser parameters and monitoring functions are under microprocessor control. The front panel LCD displays status information related to laser operation, temperatures, laser pump status, comprehensive alarm information, as well as SNMP configuration where applicable.
The units are packaged in slim 1.75-inch high (1RU), 19-inch aluminum rack-mounted enclosures.
