Leading test and measurement company Keysight Technologies will exhibit its latest optical and photonic test solutions at OFC 2018, March 13-15.
Keysight Technologies said it will demonstrate testing solutions for 400G/PAM4 in the data center, coherent test, and optical component characterization addressing customer workflow from design to characterization and validation across all network layers, as well as manufacturing.
The Keysight Ixia K400 QSFP-DD Load Modules will demonstrate the industry’s first line rate, PAM4 based 400G Ethernet traffic using Source Photonics’ QSFP-DD LR8 optical transceivers.
“Keysight’s mission in the optical market is to shorten time-to-market and reduce cost-of-test for customers in R&D and manufacturing, as well as enable innovative technologies which include new optical components, network elements & systems, and all-optical fiber networks,” said Joachim Peerlings, vice president and general manager, Networks and Data Centers, Keysight.
NeoPhotonics, a designer and manufacturer of optoelectronic solutions, uses Keysight’s N4391A Optical Modulation Analyzer (OMA), M8196A Arbitrary Waveform Generator (AWG) and N4373D Lightwave Component Analyzer (LCA) in the development of their 64 GBaud coherent optical components for 1.2T applications including 64GBaud COSA.
Accelink Technologies, a supplier of optoelectronic devices, uses Keysight’s N1092A DCA-M with a N1077A Clock Recovery (CR) unit as well as M8040A High-Performance BERT to develop its single lambda 100G DR1 for data center and 5G wireless applications.
