Paper Abstract

In the light of achievable component performance, we discuss from both a theoretical and an experimental point of view the applications of erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFA) in long distance repeaterless digital transmission and analog cable TV distribution. In digital repeaterless systems, EDFA postamplifiers, preamplifiers and remotely pumped amplifiers are considered. In analog TV distribution networks, EDFA postamplifiers and in-line amplifiers are evaluated.
