EDFA, Optical Amplifiers

ATX’s TranScend EDFA optical amplifiers offer a cost-effective solution to increase fiber reach in various CATV architectures. When used in conjunction with the ATX Chromadigm series of transmitters, they offer unprecedented performance at a very attractive price point. This platform supports a variety of cable architectures with a wide range of gain flattened amplifiers that are programmable for either constant power or constant gain operating modes. Versions are available with single, dual and quad outputs to improve architectural cost-effectiveness. Additionally, versions are available that provide PON architecture support with pass through ports and express ports.
