IPG Photonics Announces Enhancements to Optical Amplification Portfolio for Long-Haul Transmission

Global Leader in Optical Amplification Supports Long-Haul Transmission Market With Optimized Portfolio

OXFORD, MASSACHUSETTS, Mar. 1 - IPG Photonics Corporation, the world leader in high-power fiber lasers and amplifiers, proudly announces significant enhancements to the company's Optical Amplification and Transmission portfolio that enable cost effective, non-repeatered ultra-long haul communication links in DWDM, electrical power utility, transportation, pipeline and other demanding applications.

IPG develops and manufactures the key specialty components used in the Optical Amplification portfolio, including semiconductor diodes, active fibers and other high-power components. IPG's proprietary pumping technology enables the highest output power achievable at a cost point not achievable from other solutions. IPG offers a range of optical amplification technologies, including 2nd-order, Raman-assisted, Remote-Optically-Pumped-Amplifier (ROPA) optical pumps that enable un-repeatered transmission extending over 100 dB of optical budget.

One of the new products that IPG is now shipping is the multi-rate transponder with G.709 FEC and a unique digital filtering scheme which extend the optical budget for telemetry links by up to 10 dB. When the transponder is paired with the Pre-amp & Booster module, up to 70 dB of optical budget is supported for the mission-critical STM 1/4 telemetry links in electric power utility, transportation and pipeline communication networks.

A stand-alone Pre-amp & Booster chassis has also recently been introduced that supports up to 60 dB optical budget for legacy, 3rd party optical transmission platforms. A 200 mW booster amplifier is paired with a pre-amp with -38 dBm receive sensitivity in a small 1 RU (1.75" or 43.7mm vertical rack space) package that mounts in a 19" (478 mm) equipment rack.
