Optical Amplifiers are evolving. There are various types including the EDFA, Raman, and Semiconductor configurations. The EDFA optical amplifier units can be used in telecom and datacom (SONET/SDH/DWDM/Gigabit Ethernet) applications to change an electrical signal into an optical signal and vice versa.

According to Susan Eustis, lead author of the study, Optical Amplifiers are used to update the communications networks to manage broadband, to update the data center networks to make them manage traffic with higher speeds, to implement the backbone network for mobile communications.

Everything is going mobile. This evolution is driven by mobile smart phones and tablets that provide universal connectivity. With 6 billion cell phones in use and one billion smart phones, soon to be 6 billion smart phones, a lot of people have access to mobile communication. Video, cloud-based services, the internet, and machine-to-machine (M2M) provide mobile connectivity. All these devices are networked and drive significant traffic to the broadband network, stimulating the need for optical transceivers.
