Paper Abstract

We describe the design and performance of single pump 980 nm pre and post Er3+ doped fiber amplifiers plug-in modules. We demonstrate the potential and robustness of these amplifiers in a 980 nm-based rack mounted repeaterless 5 Gb/s system with a 54 dB optical power margin system. Excellent long term bit error ratio measurements (< 10-14) are reported for various system configurations. In particular, error free transmission is obtained with suppression of stimulated Brillouin scattering through 60 km of non-dispersion fiber.
