EDFA Optical Amplifier

Part Number:



The Prisma II optical network allows for best in class architectures with increased reliability, scalability, and cost-effectiveness. The High Density (HD) Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier (EDFA) is designed to fit into a Prisma XD chassis or a standard full height Prisma II chassis (with the use of a host module). Up to two HD EDFA modules can be populated into a host module which requires a single service slot in the Prisma II chassis.


  • EDFA modules for optical amplification
  • High density design allowing up to 16 EDFAs in a Prisma II XD chassis or up to 24 in a full height Prisma II chassis with redundant power supplies
  • Energy-efficient design with low power consumption
  • EDFA modules have both constant power and constant gain modes of operation
  • Master/Slave redundancy using Controller Area Network with no external wiring needed
  • Multiple setup and control options
    ◦ Local Control via Local Craft Interface (LCI)
    ◦ Local monitoring via Intelligent Communications Interface Module (ICIM)
    ◦ Remote monitoring via ROSA status monitoring and control element manager
