Paper Abstract

In this work, by means of numerical simulation, the application of the link control protection technique on power transient suppression in cascades of distributed fiber Raman amplifiers (DFRAs) is investigated. The results point out that for a 10 DFRA's cascade, the power excursion in the surviving channels, at the 10th amplification stage, is reduced by 2.15 dB to 0.037 dB, when 8 out of 10 channels are involved in add/drop operations.
