1U platform with single, dual or quad DWDM amplifiers


  •  PL-1000IL is designed to cost-effectively extend the optical link power budget for building long distance DWDM solutions. It provides amplification for a range of optical solutions, from single wavelength, up to the full C-band, and incorporates several types of low-noise Erbium-doped fibre amplifiers (EDFAs): booster, inline, and pre-amplifier.
  • Fully managed via dedicated integrated OSC
  • Full remote monitoring on the input and output power, and userconfigurable gain.
  • Eye safety feature - automatically shuts down the EDFA in case of fibre interruption.
  • Fully integrated solution including mux/demux, amplifier, and DCM.
  • Integrates with PacketLight management platforms and transponder/muxponder products.
  • Up to 4 amplifier modules in a 1U chassis
  • Supports up to 96 wavelengths
  • Supports AGC and APC operation modes
  • Embedded OSC for remote management and topology detection
  • Optional optical switch for facility protection
  • Integrated single/dual DCM for long distance 10G amplified links
  • Supports single and dual fibre operation
  • Supports optional up to 16 channel mux/demu
  • Offers several EDFA types: Booster: Inline:Pre-amplifiers:Midstage
  • Low power consumption
