Neptec’s compact mini Erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) module is designed for optical communication and CATV signal amplification. It can be used as a power amplifier, in-line amplifier or pre-amplifier based on specific system architecture. It’s compact footprint makes it easy to be installed where it is needed, offering flexibility to network design.

Every network is different. Neptec ensures that every product we sell is highly customizable to fit any optical fiber application. If the standard Mini EDFA below do not fit your application, we would be glad to review your specifications and quote a custom one for you.
