LiComm Co., Ltd. of South Korea has added an SFP+-EDFA to its line of pluggable amplifiers. The amplifier module fits into any powered SFP/SFP+ slot to provide C-Band amplification, the company says.

The SFP+-EDFA module, which is currently sampling, can provide saturation output power of up to +17 dBm or provide an additional 30-dB gain in Rx performance via an integrated uncooled 980-nm pump laser module. The pluggable amplifier module also features integrated control circuitry and is electrically and mechanically compatible with conventional SFP/SFP+ optical transceivers.

LiComm envisions the SFP+-EDFA supporting a wide variety of applications, including 5G mobile, data center, and network service provider DWDM and ROADM scenarios, where space savings is a desire. The SFP+-EDFA joins XFP-EDFA and QSFP-EDFA versions in the company’s pluggable amplifier portfolio.
