This paper discussed about Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) and Erbium-Doped Fiber Amplifiers (EDFA) and the performance of both WDM and EDFA in C-band frequency range. Optical amplifier is used to compensate for the wakening of information during the transmission because of fiber optic attenuation. There are three general applications of optical amplifiers that are in-line amplifier, power amplifier and also preamplifier. Basically this paper analyzed the performance of an optical system based on the different factors, focusing in C-band frequency. The factors are the different wavelengths, the different length of EDFA, and also the three different types of optical amplifier.
