Super Fast Response Auto Gain Controlled Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier

DRAFT RELEASE - Version 2.0

Ottawa, Canada – May 30, 2021

Conventional Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifiers (EDFA’s) exhibit some degree of non-linear behaviour with respect to wavelength and the amplitude of the signals to be amplified. Moreover, in DWDM transmission systems the adding or dropping of a transmission frequency through an EDFA can introduce transient behavior, where the signal through the amplifier overshoots or undershoots, disrupting data transmission. For conventional EDFAs the transient time period during which over/undershoot occurs is typically about 100 microseconds.

Now OZ Optics Limited, a world leading supplier of fiber optic products for existing and next-generation optical networks, presents an Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier (EDFA) that features auto-gain control to achieve sub-microsecond transient suppression time with less than ±0.3 dB under/overshoot. The fixed gain of 25 dB is independent of wavelength and the signal strength over C band when the signals to be amplified are within -19 dBm to -11 dBm. This is an improvement in the transient response time of over two orders of magnitude.

Designed to be used for traditional C-band wavelengths, this Super Fast EDFA amplifies signals within a 3.2 nm window, enough to amplify four adjacent channels within in a DWDM transmission system. The amplifier can be configured for any 3.2 nm sub-band within the C-band wavelength range. Contact OZ Optics for more details.
