EAR Series: 2 RU Rack Mounted Fiber Amplifiers
Multiport EDFAs for FTTx Networks

The EAR Series are low noise, high performance Erbium-Doped Fiber Amplifiers (EDFAs) that provide the ideal building blocks for FTTx networks. Integrated CWDM splitters are available to enable the routing of 1310 nm and 1490 nm data streams from the OLT to the ONU through the EDFA, reducing component count and improving system performance.

IPG’s EAR Series EDFAs offer the widest flexibility in output power and port count available today  in the market. 1 RU packages are available for deployments requiring lower port counts. IPG EDFAs have a broad input power specification (from -5 to +10 dBm) and can be cascaded within a single equipment rack to support long-term growth as new homes are connected over time.

IPG’s EAR series of Erbium Fiber Amplifiers have been accepted by the Rural Utilities Service (RUS) of the United States Department of Agriculture. USDA RUS acceptance allows IPG’s cost-effective EAR Series of Erbium Fiber Amplifiers to be purchased using RUS loans and grants.
