BS EN 61291-6-1:2008 Optical amplifiers. Interfaces. Command set

BS EN 61291-6-1 describes the optical amplifier command set (OACS) for use in communicating with and controlling intelligent optical amplifiers. These amplifiers can receive and possibly respond to such commands by using resident firmware or may be optical amplifiers controlled by a microprocessor.

BS EN 61291-6-1 addresses the structure and content of the command set to control optical amplifiers. It does not cover the physical or hardware interface, which is assumed to exist for communication of this command set to the optical amplifier. The specification of a physical interface will be the subject of a separate Part.

The command set described in BS EN 61291-6-1 is intended to enable a user or host to retrieve the amplifier module’s status and/or adjust its settings.

BS EN 61291-6-1 lists all of the commands currently defined and supported within the OACS framework. The commands described cover a wide range of applications, and not all commands will be applicable to every amplifier. To determine the supported commands on an
OACS compliant amplifier, please refer to the product specification supplied by the manufacturer.

All OACS compliant amplifiers support the full set of “universal” OACS commands. Other commands, usually specific to a design or implementation, may support some or all of the “optional” commands.
