IPG’s telecommunications innovations have changed the playing field in the long haul and the ultra long haul marketplaces. IPG’s Raman pump fiber laser technology allows service providers to extend DWDM network links beyond previously achievable distances of more than 350 km without the need for amplifiers or repeaters within the link. IPG’s amplifiers have been qualified, deployed and are being designed into a large number of product for leading system manufacturers.
These lasers can be used as an adjunct or integrated into OEM systems. They are provided in a module or in a rack mounted form. These new pump sources are ideal in advanced dense wavelength division multiplexed (DWDM) systems which use distributed Raman amplification in transmission fibers to improve noise characteristics, flatten gain, and increase span length.
