Optimized Optical Amplification Solutions

Compact Ultra-long-haul (ULH) System

The 2 Rack Unit (RU) version of the ULH system is an economical companion to the 8RU, 16 Input/ Output (I/O) slot shelf. This compact shelf has 4 I/O card slots and accommodates any combination of 4 ULH I/O blades including transponders (2.5G multi-rate, 10G and 40G) and optical amplifiers (pre-amplifiers, booster amplifiers, Raman signal amplifiers and optical pumps for EDFA-based Remote Optically Pumped Amplifiers.)

The shelf is equipped with two load-sharing power supplies and a control unit (CU). The CU provides status monitoring, control and adjustment of the installed blades and hosts the SNMP Management Information Base (MIB) for the system. The 2RU ULH shelf is ideally suited to very long distances in single-channel optical transmission applications including high voltage electrical power, transportation and pipeline telemetry networks. Up to 90 dB of optical budget can be supported in this compact configuration.
