XFP-OA Optical Amplifier
Finisar’s XFP-OA Optical Amplifier is an Erbium-Doped Fiber Amplifier (EDFA) in a small form factor hot-pluggable optical module. It amplifies optical signals to enable long Hybrid Fiber Coaxial links and/or high optical splitting for RF-over-Glass architectures. The optical output power, which is settable by the user, is kept constant through an active feedback loop.
The XFP-OA can be paired with Finisar’s wavelength-tunable XFP-RF Transmitters for single wavelength applications or Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) up to 8 wavelengths. It installs into the same Finisar XFP-RF host system so it can be monitored and controlled through embedded Web Browser Graphical User Interface or through a network management system.
