Fiber Driver® optical amplifier modules provide multi-function, low noise, Erbium-Doped Fiber Amplifier (EDFA) solutions that are ideal for metro Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) applications. The EM316EA family of C-Band EDFA Optical Amplifiers is part of the Fiber Driver optical multi-service platform solution.
Many model options serve all the traditional amplifier applications in an extended optical link: booster, in-line, and pre-amplifier. A booster amplifier operates at the transmission side of the link. It features high input power, high output power, and medium optical gain. Boosters are designed to amplify aggregated optical input power for reach extension. An in-line amplifier operates in the middle of an optical link. It features medium to low input power, high output power, high optical gain, and a low noise figure. In-line amplifiers are designed for optical amplification.
