Broadband access applications such as Fiber-to-the-Premise (FTTP) open up a world of services to the end user by bringing fiber bandwidth ever closer to the home or business. IPG's Erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) supports different optical network architectures in the telecom market.

Dense Wavelength Division Multi-Plexing (DWDM) and optical networking solutions are a major asset to the majority of service providers, allowing them to accommodate the massive growth in bandwidth demand, extend the life of existing fibers and reduce operational and capital expenses by maximizing their bandwidth capacity.

IPG’s telecommunications innovations are changing the playing field in the metro, long-haul and ultra-long-haul marketplaces. IPG's native System-on-a-Chip (SoC) designs using Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) enable essential features such as Forward Error Correction (FEC) based on ITU G.709 as well as coherent receiver detection. 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 are qualified and deployed into a large number of products for leading telecom system manufacturers.

Fiber amplifiers are currently being used in many free space communication networks, both terrestrial and satellite-based.  Our high power amplifiers allow users to transmit highly focused signals with no or minimal effect from severe weather elements or other temporary obstructions.
