Paper Abstract

This paper presents the use of distributed, intelligent control and management in optically amplified repeaters. These optical repeater units (ORUs) are used in an optical access network. A semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) has been used in the upstream direction because of the possibility of fast switching. The real time control platform consists of both a hard- and a software part. The software control is handled with the embedded control system FORTRESS developed by IMEC.
