Minimizing the Number of Optical Amplifiers Needed to Support a Multi-Wavelength Optical LAN/MAN

Abstract

Optical networks based on passive star couplers and empiloying wavelength-division multiplexing (WDhf) have been proposed for deployment in local and metropolitan areas. Amplifiers are required in such networks t o compensate for the power losses due to splitting and attenuation. However, an optical amplifier has constraints on the maximum gain and the… (More)
