HFC Optical Access Network


The PON-EDFA series of optical amplifiers is optimized for RFoG and 1550nm RF overlay PON applications. This optical amplifier series supports either 8 or 16 outputs with up to 21 dBm of optical output power per port and incorporates PON pass through connectors on each port. These units are ideal for deployment of an RFoG architecture, with the ability to add a PON overlay network either simultaneously or at a future date. When combined with the Chromadigm series high OMI transmitter best in class CNR, BER and MER performance is achieved with lower RONU/ONT optical input levels, which lowers the cost of deployment while ensuring customer satisfaction.
