Optical Signal Processing
Erbium-doped Fiber Amplifiers (EDFA) and Dispersion Compensation Modules (DCM)
Olson Technology's  EDFA's and DCM's extend optical transmission distances for medium-haul and long-haul optical networks. The EDFA's may be ordered as a single stage device or a dual stage device with mid-stage access, which accommodates a DCM to minimize distortion for fiber runs longer than 100km as well as multiple output, very high power EDFA's. Contact Olson Technology, Inc. for assistance in designing long-haul systems.

OTEB-CO-B Booster Series 1RU EDFA Model OTEB-CO-B EDFA From Olson Technology

OTEB-CO-B Booster Series EDFA Front View

The low cost OTEB-CO-B Booster Series single output 1550nm EDFA is a 1RU rack mount EDFA package producing up to +26dBm total optical output power. It is engineered to meet the requirements of a high-density solution for the large-scale distribution of broadband CATV video (and/or wideband L-Band video) and data signals to traditional CATV HFC nodes in the field or to video overlay receivers in a FTTH/FTTP or PON system.

OTEB-CO-M Mid-Stage Access Series 1RU EDFA

OTEB-CO-M Mid-Stage Access Series EDFA Front View

The OTEB-CO-M Series mid-stage access 1550nm EDFA is a 1RU rack mount EDFA package producing up to +26dBm total optical output power. It is engineered to meet the requirements of a high-density solution for the large-scale distribution of broadband CATV video (and/or wideband L-Band video) and data signals to traditional CATV HFC nodes in the field or to video overlay receivers in a FTTH/FTTP or PON system. The Model OTEM-CO-M Series provides a convenient means of performing  dispersion compensation in a system incorporating very long fiber runs.

OTEB-CO-P Pre-Amp Series 1RU EDFA Model OTEB-CO-B EDFA From Olson Technology

OTEB-CO-P Pre-Amp Series EDFA Front View

The low cost OTEB-CO-P Pre-Amp Series single output 1550nm EDFA is a 1RU rack mount EDFA package designed to amplify very low level optical signals. It also offers very high optical gain, up to 45dB. It is engineered to meet the requirements of a high-density solution for the large-scale distribution of broadband CATV video (and/or wideband L-Band video) and data signals to traditional CATV HFC nodes in the field or to video overlay receivers in a FTTH/FTTP or PON system.

OT-DCM-G Series Dispersion Compensation Module (DCM) OT-DCM-G Dispersion Compensation Module

OT-DCM-G Series DCM Front and Rear Views (Note:  Color may vary)

The OT-DCM-G Series Dispersion Compensation Module removes distortion from optical signals in analog and digital systems that use standard SMF-28 fiber over long fiber runs. The Dispersion Compensation Module cancels out the fiber’s positive dispersion, increasing transmission distance and enhancing the signal fidelity. The unit may be ordered for use with FC/APC or SC/APC connectors. Models are available in in 10km increments from 10km to 120km compensation lengths.

OTEB-CL-B Series 1RU and 2RU High Power EDFA

OTEB-CL-B Series EDFA 1RU & 2RU Front and Rear Views

The OTEB-CL-B Series 1RU and 2RU high power 1550nm EDFA is a rack mount EDFA package producing 4 to 64 optical outputs at +18dBm to +22dBm each. The 1RU package can be used for up to eight (8) outputs and a total power of 1,000mW (+30dBm). The 2RU package can provide up to 64 outputs and a total power of 5,000mW (+375dBm). It is engineered to meet the requirements of a high-density solution for the very large scale distribution of broadband CATV video (and/or wideband multi-channel L-Band video) and data signals to traditional HFC nodes or CATV/L-Band video overlay receivers in a FTTH/ FTTP  or PON system. The LaserLite Model OTEB-CL-B-Series erbium doped fiber amplifier is the perfect companion to Olson’s LaserPlus, LaserLite and SatellitePlus families of 1550nm EM and DM transmitters and the MetroNode, PremiseNode and SatellitePlus families of receiver/nodes. It is also designed to operate seamlessly with optical transmitters, receivers and nodes from most leading manufacturers.

LP-OA LaserPlus EDFA Module Model LP-OA LaserPlus EDFA Module

LP-OA LaserPlus EDFA Module Front View

The LP-OA LaserPlus EDFA module is a rack mount EDFA package that provides an optical output ranging from at +13dBm to +22dBm at the rated optical input power of +3dBm over a wavelength range from 1540nm to 1560nm.The EDFA module optically amplifies CATV or L-Band signals and is ideal for hybrid fiber/coax (HFC) applications. The module mounts in a LaserPlus rack chassis for use with LaserPlus transmitters and receivers. The front panel features LED indicators for optical input power, optical output power, laser temperature, pump enable and pump status that allow the health of the unity to assessed at a glance. The unit also provides extensive SNMP capability that allows a number of system parameters to be determined.
