Raman Amplifier

PL-1000R DWDM Raman Amplification Solution PL-1000R

PacketLight’s PL-1000R is designed for distributed Raman amplification applications, cost-effectively extending the optical link power budget and significantly improving OSNR.

The PL-1000R enables long distance DWDM solutions and facilitates the transport of 100G/200G and 400G wavelengths over the DWDM optical backbone. It provides amplification for a range of optical solutions and incorporates several configurations of Raman amplifier, including counter-propagating and hybrid Raman-EDFA.

Powerful Feature Set

The PL-1000R is fully managed, configured and monitored remotely as part of the network, via optical supervisory channel (OSC) or Inband (GCC). The Raman is controlled, adjusted and monitored by the user.

The Raman includes three eye safety mechanisms that shut down the unit in case of fiber link disruption, such as open connectors or broken fiber, even at a distance of a few tens of kilometers from the unit.

Key Advantage

Terminal Raman Amplifier

The device provides a full terminal solution as it can include a Raman, booster and preamp in a single 1U chassis
