SOUTHAMPTON, U.K. -- Fibercore Limited, one of the World's leading specialty fiber manufacturers, has introduced GainMaster(tm) software, a highly sophisticated erbium doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) design and simulation package. Continuing with its Total Customer Support (TCS(tm)) philosophy, Fibercore designed the new software to deliver time and cost savings to support the global drive for cost reduction in EDFA manufacture where labour costs continue to dominate the industry.

Dr. Chris Emslie, Managing Director, of Fibercore Limited commented, "The truth is that what remains of the market bears little resemblance to what we left behind at the beginning of 2001 - not only are EDFA manufacturers 'Leaner and Meaner' and fewer, but their products are different too. They are more sophisticated in their performance and more complex in their design. Within reason, anyone can fabricate an erbium doped fiber for use in a single channel booster amplifier as demonstrated by the number available on the market. However, today's flattened, multi-stage designs for DWDM require something very different - experience, product consistency, performance and advanced simulation capability. Having introduced erbium doped fibers to the commercial market in 1988, and with an order book for IsoGain(tm) and MetroGain(tm) erbium doped fiber products that currently run up to tens of kilometres per month, Fibercore Limited has the first three bases covered. Our GainMaster software completes the picture."
