A design method is proposed that yields the optimum remote pre-amplifier (RPRA) parameters considering cable repair, the results of include increased cable loss and insertion position uncertainty. The optimum RPRA location is given by the intersection point of optical SNR (OSNR) vs. RPRA location curves in two cases; the total cable repair loss is assumed to be inserted at the transmitter end and at the receiver end. This RPRA parameter gives the maximum OSNR in the worst loss insertion case by cable repair.
