In our previous work, we reported the optimum design for 10 km and 50 km length fibers for a distributed erbium doped fiber amplifier(DEDFA), based on a comprehensive computer model. This design contained an erbium doping concentration of 20 - 22 parts per billion, V of 1.775 with a signal wavelength of 1555 nm using low signal powers, -30 dBm, and bidirectionally pumping at 1480 nm. This paper investigates the effects of operating a DEDFA at the optimum doping concentration with large input signal power in which the ASE has a greater effect on the overall performance. The final issue addressed is the noise figure under similar circumstances.
