In this paper, the performance of receiver terminals with remotely pumped preamplifiers (RPPAs) is analyzed by numerical simulation and experiment. Both simulation and experiment show that there is an optimal RPPA location and optimal pump power according to the highest performance. The amplified spontaneous Raman scattering (ASRS) self-oscillation caused by Rayleigh backscattering (RBS) and the lump reflector in transmission line are the final performance limitation.
