Electronic doped fiber amplifier. Concept made into law in 1984 Modified Final Judgement (MFJ) that all long distance carriers must have the same access to local facilities as AT&T Electronic serial number (ESN) A 32-bit code that is unique to each mobile unit. Used to validate mobile.
an optical amplifier that amplifies a light signal for propagation across long-distance fiber networks
Erbium doped fiber amplifier. EDFAs are used for amplifying optical signals in long-haul optical networks. Unlike electro-optic repeaters, which convert light to electricity, amplify the signal, and then reconvert it to light, EDFAs amplify the light signal itself. EDFAs have advantages that make them critical components of optical networks: they are fast, very simple, and are not frequency-dependent, meaning that networks may be upgraded by installing new wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) equipment without changing fiber or amplifiers between nodes.
Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier. A type of fiber optical amplifier that transmits a light signal through a section of erbium-doped fiber and amplifies the signal with a laser pump diode. EDFA is used in transmitter booster amplifiers, in-line repeating amplifiers, and in receiver preamplifiers.
erbium-doped fiber amplifier (1550nm)
Erbium doped fiber amplifier. Common type of optical light amplifier used in 1550 nm fiber optic systems.
Erbium-doped fiber amplifier, an all optical amplifier for 1550 nm SM transmissionsystems.

An optical amplifier. Erbium is injected into fiber, and as a light pulse passes through the erbium, it is amplified, thus, it does not have to be stopped and processed as an electrical signal. The introduction of EDFAs opened up the opportunity to make use of fiber-optic systems operating at 10Gbps.
