Multichannel EDFA (WRA-217)
This simple, economical C-band optical amplification solution in a flexible, ready-to-use package includes an advanced gain control circuit, an efficient pump laser and a mid-stage variable attenuator. The WRA-217 amplifier includes an advanced gain control circuit, an efficient pump laser and a mid-stage variable attenuator.
The WRA-217 is configurable as a booster or as a pre/inline amplifier. The module works by default in constant signal gain mode but can be configured to constant total output power mode. The ease-of-use and performance of the WRA-217 make this EDFA an ideal solution for access and metro DWDM optical networks.
Front panel light emitting diodes (LEDs) indicate module status, while integrated electronics provide alarm and control functionality. Deployed with a WaveReady communications module (COM200), these units offer remote management and configuration through TL1, SNMP, or using the WaveReady Node Manager. Local and remote management is through an RS-232 or Ethernet port on the communications module.
The module is installed in a WaveReady 3500F or 3100 (shelf-mounted, 19- or 23- inch telecommunications racks).
