Abstract We describe a quasi-all-optical extension dedicated to simplifying the deployment of submarine cabled observatories. Based on power-over-fiber technologies, high power supply and data are both transmitted in one optical fiber of a few kilometers in length. We study the Raman amplification on the down-and up-stream data in the static regime with the high optical power varying from 100 mW to 4 W over a 10 km long single-mode optical fiber. We focus on the data optical budget and signal to noise ratio dependence with respect to the high optical power value and the data optical wavelength. We also present the transmission quality in the dynamic regime of this quasi-all-optical extension.
