The EDFAs are gain-adjustable and flattened, and have high optical signal to noise ratio (OSNR), enabling to cascade several EDFAs to form an amplified OTN link over long distances without the need for regenerators or for building ROADM networks.
Powerful Feature Set
The PL-1000IL is fully managed, configured and monitored remotely as part of the network, via optical supervisory channel (OSC). In addition, the PL-1000IL supports both automatic gain control (AGC) and automatic power control (APC) operation modes. The amplifiers can be tuned to the network needs and monitored by PacketLight’s free web-based management tool or PacketLight LightWatchTM NMS.
In addition, the PL-1000IL can incorporate a mux/demux and an optical switch and serve in edge applications.
