RFA Card

The RFA optical amplifier board is developed by GIGALIGHT for use in dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) optical communication systems in conjunction with EDFA amplification. Based on stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) effect in optical fibers, it effectively mitigates the impact of nonlinear effects such as four-wave mixing and improves the system’s optical signal-to-noise ratio (OSNR), significantly extending the transmission distance.


Product Features

  • Supports amplification of DWDM systems in the C-band
  • Supports maximum saturated output power of -5dBm and minimum input power of -38dBm
  • Low noise figure, high gain, and low power consumption
  • Monitoring capabilities: pump drive current, pump output power, pump switch, pump temperature, input optical power, output optical power, module temperature
  • Supports SNMP-based unified network management platform, with management options including CLI (telnet and console), Web, NetRiver (graphical interface)
