Z-Series Optical Amplifier
The Z-Series L-AMP is a self-contained 1RU-high platform that functions as a bi-directional mid-span optical amplifier/repeater. Each 4-port L-AMP system supports bi-directional physical layer amplification of multiple DWDM wavelengths where node-to-node spans are greater than 80 kilometers. A single L-AMP supports two independent data paths for both east-to-west and west-to-east optical amplification. Each amplifier chain includes both pre-amp and booster Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifiers (EDFAs). The pre-amplifiers support external dispersion compensating fiber.
An optical supervisory channel (OSC) carrying 100FX Ethernet over a dedicated 1510-nm wavelength supports OAM functions. The L-AMP incorporates a G.7712 compliant OSPF routing function for management plane connectivity.
The Cyan L-AMP incorporates external environmental alarm contacts and is supported by Cyan's Planet Operate multi-layer management system.
