4.1.5 Power Budget Calculations for ML1200 PM’s with Fiber Media
Receiver Sensitivity and Transmitter Power are the parameters necessary to compute the
power budget. To calculate the power budget of different fiber media installations using
Multilink products, the following equations should be used:
OPB (Optical Power Budget) = P
T
(min) - P
R
(min)
where P
T
= Transmitter Output Power, and P
R
Worst case OPB = OPB - 1dB(for LED aging) - 1dB(for insertion loss)
Worst case distance = {Worst case OPB, in dB} / [Cable Loss, in dB/Km]
where the “Cable Loss” for 62.5/125 and 50/125μm (M.m) is 2.8 dB/km,
and the “Cable Loss” for 100/140 (Multi-mode) is 3.3 dB/km,
and the “Cable Loss” for 9/125 (Single-mode) is 0.5 dB/km
and the “Cable Loss” for 9/125 (Single-mode) is 0.4 dB/km (LX25)
and the “Cable Loss” for 9/125 (Single-mode) is 0.25 dB/km (ZX40)
and the “Cable Loss” for 9/125 (Single-mode) is 0.2 dB/km (ZX70)
The following data has been collected from component manufacturer’s (Agilent’s and
Lucent’s) web sites and catalogs to provide guidance to network designers and installers.
