Abstract
The advent of practical optical gain raises the prospect of lightwave networks with very large capacities, especially when multiple wavelengths are employed. Erbium-doped fiber amplifiers can be arranged in lengthy cascades that deliver strong, well- regulated light levels in single-wavelength systems. However, substantial new challenges arise in amplified multiwavelength networks. We survey means of solving them.
