1RU Preamplifiers

1RU R35Easily integrated into network systems, the 1RU Pre-Amplifier Series provides gain-flattened amplification of single channel or multiple C-band signal channels (1530-1565 nm).

Based on MPBC’s EOA Series Gain Modules, the 1RU-R line of preamplifiers are renowned for having one of the lowest noise figures in the industry. Installed right before the receive terminal, the unit provides pre-amplification of the signal from the link, resulting in an exceptional receiver sensitivity.
