Transmission performance of an optical amplifier repeater system has been intensively investigated and confirmed through long-haul testbed experiments[l]-[2]. Now, several optical amplifier communication systems are under installation all over the world. We have conducted the research and the development of optical amplifier technologies to implement optical amplifier submarine cable systems[3]-[4], and the developed system is named OS-A system. This OS-A system has four sub-systems at maximum and each sub-system transmits 5.3 Gbit/s signal. Development of OS-A system has been successfully conducted and the system is to be applied to TPC-5 Cable Network (TPC-5CN).
