C plus L band extended reach amplified next generation access networks
Rights accessRestricted access - publisher's policy
The feasibility of optical amplification solutions for extended reach next generation access networks in C + L bands is studied. Amplification schemes based on Raman fiber amplifier and their combination with remotely pumped erbium-doped fiber amplifiers are assessed and optimized. The results concerning a ring with 80 km for rural scenario demonstrate gain equalization over a bandwidth of 50 nm. The survey was complemented with experimental results.
