Add / Drop Option

Combining the Add/Drop box with our ASE Comb Source allows for an even broader range of applications. The Add/Drop box filters out one or more fixed channels depending on the customer’s request.

  • Allows the replacement of these missing channels with real data carrying channels

  • Modulated channels can be used for Bit-Error Rate testing

  • Easy monitoring of Four-Wave Mixing

Applications

  • Simultaneously measure optical amplifier gain flatness and noise figure under conditions of full channel loading (high peak-to-valley extinction ratio extends NF measurement capability to high-power booster amplifiers)

  • Measure the full band OSNR and channel power evolution over links consisting of multiple spans and optical amplifiers without the need for costly banks of DFB lasers

  • Measure magnitude of inter-channel Raman pumping along a span for fully-loaded band case

  • Test DWDM demux components
