Headend Optical Amplifier N2U-OA300

Rack Mounted Optical Amplifiers


The N2U-OA300 series of Erbium-Doped Fiber Amplifiers (EDFAs) is optimized for Passive Optical Networks (PON) and Large Distribution Systems applications. These high-performance, RoHS compliant optical amplifiers provide operators with a low noise figure and optimal output power levels at operating wavelengths ranging between 1544 nm and 1562 nm.

The OA300 series is a 2RU rack-mount NEBS Level 1 certified unit. Powering options include integrated, dual redundant 110/220VAC or integrated, dual redundant -48VDC power supplies. Units with several power levels per port options, and 8 or 16 output ports, are also available. Input and output monitor ports allow operators to test and monitor units while they are still operating. For additional ease of use and space savings, ARRIS offers units with integrated WDMs. These models allow operators to optimize either their PON or RFoG networks using the same 2RU footprint.
