I-Type Medallion 6000 Series 1550 nm Fiber Optic Transmitter

The I-Type Medallion 6000 series is a family of state-of-the-art high-performance 1550 nm externally-modulated CATV fiber optic transmitters optimized for International network applications that employ an 85 MHz forward / reverse path split frequency. Packaged in a convenient 1 RU housing, this line of optical transmitters couples high optical output power, up to 10.0 dBm, with low optical linewidth resulting in unmatched performance. The optical modulator, combined with proprietary pre-distortion circuitry, provides superior CTB and CSO performance with adjustable SBS suppression levels of greater than 19 dBm.

The I-Type transmitter’s exceptional performance is enabled by EMCORE’s proprietary high power, narrow linewidth CW (Continuous Wave) laser technology. When deployed with one or more EMCORE optical amplifiers, transmissions of 150 km can be achieved. The feature-rich WEB GUI and SNMP interface bring a whole suite of advanced operator monitoring and configuration options to the platform, allowing for secure, simplified and future-ready functionality for the next generation of intelligent networks.

I-Type transmitters are specially designed and optimized to support fiber optic links of up to 150 km for the international marketplace and other markets with similar requirements.
