Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


In this paper, we describe the use of an erbium-doped fibre amplifier in a 16-channel coherent broadcast network experiment operating in the wavelength range of 1538.8 to 1540nm. The fibre gain was 22dB and the amplifier dynamic range was 15dB for the entire transmission spectrum. amplify sixteen 155Mb/s signals on one output of a 16-by-16 star coupler, allowing a total span loss of 47dB between transmitted and received signals. Satisfactory transmission system performance is obtained for error ratios of 10
