The authors have investigated the performance comparison of different hybrid optical amplifiers (RAMAN-EDFA,RAMANSOA, SOA-EDFA,EDFA-RAMAN-EDFA).The proposed configuration consists of 16, 32 and 64 Gbps channels at speed of 10 Gbps. They have realized the different hybrid amplifiers and their parameters like quality factor, ber, eye opening and jitter at different number of channels. The different combinations can provide a better result and better feasibility for long distance transmission. It is observed that SOA-EDFA showed good performance as it can travel max distance of 220,240,260 km at 16, 32 and 64 channels respectively.
