Configuring an Optical Attenuator

Configuring an Optical Attenuator

This section describes how to configure an optical attenuator.

Calculating the Optical Attenuation

You can calculate the optical attenuation based on the actual optical power.

P(in)min: worst sensitivity, that is, maximum value of the worst sensitivity.
P(out)max: maximum transmit optical power.
S: transmission distance.
A: attenuation coefficient. Note that the attenuation coefficient is related to optical fiber types and wavelengths. By default, the attenuation coefficient of a 1310-nm wavelength in a G.652 fiber is 0.45 dBm/km or 0.4 dBm/km; the attenuation coefficient of a 1550-nm wavelength in a G.652 fiber is 0.235 dBm/km or 0.25 dBm/km.
P(in)max: maximum receive optical power, that is, minimum overload point.

The principle for determining whether an attenuator needs to be configured at a transmission point is as follows:

If P(out)max – S x Attenuation coefficient > P(in)max, an attenuator needs to be configured.

The optical attenuation is calculated in the following formula: T= P(out)max - S x Attenuation coefficient - P(in)max.

Table 11-2 Reference for configuring an attenuator

BOM Number












-8 dBm

-15 dBm -31 dBm -8 dBm

If P(in)max of an optical module equals P(out)max, you do not need to configure an attenuator.

You can choose the 5 dBm and 10 dBm attenuators for optical modules on the device.
