Ordering Information
The Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP offers an enhanced optical amplifier card operating in the C-band region of the optical spectrum to extend the reach and capacity of a metro, regional, or long-haul network. The optical amplifier cards are part of the Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP intelligent DWDM architecture engineered to reduce DWDM complexity and speed the deployment of networking solutions.

The Cisco ONS 15454 enhanced optical amplifier card is a plug-in module that takes advantage of the proven Cisco ONS 15454 carrier-class features. This card delivers the reach and optical performances to support a single DWDM channel all the way to 80 channels today, to meet the requirements of service provider and enterprise networks.

This flexible amplifier can be used as a preamplifier or as a booster amplifier, providing a total output power of 20 dBm. It integrates an optical service channel splitter/combiner to allow the optical supervisory channel (OSC) to be sent to and received from the optical service channel module (OSCM) card. It employs a two-stage amplifier design to allow insertion of dispersion-management devices to compensate for pulse spreading at higher multiplexer speeds.
