WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., 6 Dec. 2006. Lynx Photonic Networks in Woodland Hills, Calif., is unveiling a line of optical amplifiers, expanding its LightLEADER family of carrier-class stand-alone systems.

The LightLEADER 6100 is a rack mountable erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) system and boosts optical signals within fiber networks. Telecommunications and cable operators can extend the distance traffic can be carried by placing the LL6100 along the fiber path, reducing the need for expensive signal regeneration equipment.

EDFAs are for long-haul links and are can be cost effective when used together with DWDM links. "These systems are based on a proprietary design that extends the product life well beyond what is common in the industry," says Beni Kopelovitz, president and chief technology officer of Lynx. "Additionally, the wide temperature operating range makes the product suitable for deployment in outdoor conditions.
