FTTH Erbium Doped Amplifier (EDFA)

Amonics FTTH EDFAs inherit the reliable design of Amonics’s optical amplifier technology. They exhibit high output power, high gain with very low noise, and are ideal for FTTH network amplification.

Integrated CWDM splitters are available to enable routing of 1310nm and 1490nm data streams from OLT to ONU through EDFAs. The turnkey rackmount EDFAs provide microprocessor controlled alarms and status indicators. An integrated Ethernet TCP-IP computer interface enables easy control, diagnostic functions and data acquisition.
