Abstract
Erbium doped fiber amplifiers in eight different system configurations are investigated, using a very accurate model. The in-line placement of the amplifier is shown to be optimum. A distributed amplifier is compared to the remote pumping scheme showing no system improvement. By the use of a booster, an inline remote pumped amplifier and a preamplifier up to 180 km of extra transmission fiber can be added.
