CommScope CH3000 – FA3500

The ARRIS FA3500 series is a family of high‐output, extremely compact 1550 nm optical amplifiers. Output powers ranging from 14 to 21 dBm are available in a single‐width module designed for use in the CH3000 3RU chassis. Dual amplifier versions, which provide two optically independent amplifiers in a single‐width module, are also available. These high performance amplifiers allow operators to use 1550 nm analog and DWDM transmitters to deliver high‐quality broadcast and digital narrowcast content over significant transmission distances.
