"DWDM Booster Inline and Pre-Amplifier EDFA Solution"

The PL-1000IL is designed to extend the power link budget of DWDM solutions in a cost effective manner. The PL-1000IL provides amplification for a range of optical solutions starting from 4 wavelengths to up to 32 wavelengths and incorporates 3 main types of low-noise EDFAs (Erbium-Doped Fiber Amplifiers) Booster, Inline and Pre-Amplifier.

The EDFAs are gain flattened and have low Optical Signal to Noise Ratio (OSNR), thus enabling cascading of several EDFAs to form amplified link over long distance. PL-1000IL is fully integrated with PL-400 and PL-1000. In addition, PL-1000IL unit are fully managed, configured, and monitored via PacketLight's user-friendly Web-based management tool, PacketLight's EMS solution or any third party SNMP based management tool.


  • Supports 4/8/16/32 and 40 C-band wavelengths
  • Offering three main EDFA types: Booster, Inline and Pre-Amplifiers
  • Supports AGC (Automatic Gain Control) and APC (Automatic Power Control) operation modes
  • Embedded Optical Supervisory Channel for remote management and topology detection
  • Supports single and dual fiber operation
  • Dual AC or DC pluggable power supply and pluggable FAN units


  • Extending the optical link power budget to meet distance and attenuation requirements of DWDM networks
  • High throughput Metro Ethernet connectivity over large distances
  • Upgrade the optical link budget to support 10G services
  • Reducing number of regenerators and sites along the fiber
  • Overcome old fiber infrastructure high loss
