A new intelligent EDFA design for metropolitan optical networks is proposed. It integrates a post-amplifier and a pre-amplifier function within one module. Only one pump laser, the gain resource could be tunable deployed between the forward and backward directions. In other word, all pump power will be used high efficiently. To demonstrate the super-flexibility of this EDFA, there are a few application cases are described, including the ring and mesh networks situation.
