Description/Abstract

An erbium-doped fibre amplifier was used in a 16-channel coherent broadcast network experiment operating in the wavelength range of 1538.8 to 1540.0 nm. The fibre-to-fibre gain was 22dB and the amplifier dynamic range was 15dB for the entire transmission spectrum. This enabled the distribution of sixteen 155Mb/s signals to one of 256 end-users at a distance of 102 km
