Product Detail

"Finisar's Optical Supervisory Channel (OSC) EDFA is designed to be used as a booster amplifier for a 1510 nm OSC. This unique EDFA, provided in a compact 70x90x15 mm MSA form factor, provides up to 12 dBm output power in the 1503-1517 nm band, thus significantly extending the link reach of the OSC. Furthermore, the use of standard EDFA technology ensures that there are no signal distortions at high output power, in contrast to semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) technology. The amplifier can optionally be integrated into a 1RU rack-mountable unit as part of Finisar's UltraSpan product portfolio for long link amplification."
