JDSU Offers Control software for Raman Optical Amplification

JDSU has integrated control software for Raman amplification within its AON Embedded Operating System, which is used in circuit packs by network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) and service providers to manage optical functions as part of their dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) network infrastructures.

JDSU said its new Raman control software helps to extend the transmission distances of optical signals between data centers up to 250 kilometers or more without the need for mid-span optical amplifiers. Extending transmission distances may lower the chance of data loss from unexpected events such as power outages and can also simplify ongoing operations and reduce costs for NEMs and service providers by removing the need to manage and house mid-span optical gear.
