Increased energy-efficiency and capacity for mixed-line-rate WDM networks with hybrid Raman-EDFA amplification

Abstract

The selective placement of additional Hybrid Raman-EDFA amplification provides an effective mechanism to improve the energy and spectral efficiency of mixed-line-rate WDM networks. The energy efficiency per GHz is increased up to 50% and the network capacity is doubled.
