We demonstrate amplification of 17x100 GHz-spaced channel in C-band by a PI-FOPA based on Mach-Zehnder architecture with net gain >10 dB and confirmed its robustness over time. A commercial 100G-PDM-QPSK transponder was used to measure/compare the bit-error-rate versus received power with a commercial EDFA.
