Generic Requirements for Optical Fiber Amplifiers and Proprietary Dense Wavelength-Division Multiplexed Systems

Document Number GR-1312
Issue Number 03
Issue Date Apr 1999
Replaces TA-NWT-001312 Issue02

    ABSTRACT: GR-1312 provides the proposed generic criteria for the performance and reliability of Optical Fiber Amplifiers (OFAs) and proprietary
    Dense Wavelength-Division Multiplexed (DWDM) systems. The criteria can be used to determine if the OFA or the DWDM system possesses
    the features, functions, and characteristics claimed by the supplier, and increases the likelihood that the product in question will
    perform according to the expectations of the user.

    OFAs are intended for use in interoffice, loop feeder, ring, and fiber-in-the-loop applications. The OFAs in this document may be
    stand-alone system elements, or may be composite OFAs that include a passive element such as a wavelength-division
    multiplexer/demultiplexer or passive dispersion compensator. (OFAs with active elements, such as transmitter or receivers, are not
    included at this time.) These can be inserted as a "black-box" into the network. Proprietary DWDM systems may or may not contain
    OFAs, and are also treated as a black-box. The internal interfaces are proprietary, and only external interfaces are considered in
    this GR.

    The document covers the structure and operation of OFAs and of DWDM systems configurations. Criteria include optical, maintenance,
    environmental, electrical, and mechanical aspects. Performance verification test procedures are covered. Network management issues
    include protocols, fault performance, configuration management, and security. Finally, criteria for reliability assurance,
    qualification, and lot controls are provided.

    This document replaces TA-NWT-001312.

    When using GR-1312, you may need to refer to GR-63, GR-20, GR-253, GR-326, SR-332, GR-409, GR-418,
    GR-499, GR-513, TR-TSY-000827, GR-828, GR-1089, GR-974, GR-2854, GR-2918, and/or various ANSI, ASTM,
    EIA, MIL-STD, IEC, and ITU-T documents.
