Keysight Demonstrates Newest Optical and High-speed Digital Test Solutions at OFC 2019
SANTA ROSA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/400G?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#400Glt;/agt;–Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company
that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate
innovation to connect and secure the world, announced it will exhibit
the company’s newest optical
and high-speed digital test solutions at OFC 2019, booth 2600, San
Diego Convention Center, March 5th – 7th, 2019.
Massive data flow from 5G, artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality
(VR), Internet of Things (IoT), and autonomous vehicles is driving
explosive traffic growth. This is creating an unprecedented demand for
bandwidth everywhere in the network and data center, while increasing
the need for 400G Ethernet and terabit optics.
“Keysight’s goal in the optical market is to enable our customers to
introduce and accelerate innovations within their cost envelope without
compromising quality. This includes new optical components, network
elements and systems, and all-optical fiber networks,” said Joachim
Peerlings, vice president and general manager, Network and Data Center
Solutions, at Keysight.
At OFC 2019, Keysight will demonstrate test solutions for high-speed
Ethernet and 400G/PAM4 in the data center, coherent test for terabit
transmission and optical component characterization addressing the
customer workflow from design to characterization and validation across
all network layers, as well as manufacturing.
Joachim Peerlings also commented, “Keysight’s close relationship with
industry leaders helps them, and us, to be first to market. Keysight’s
optical and high-speed digital test solutions have been instrumental in
the research and development of new devices that our customers will
demonstrate at OFC 2019, and they will be an integral part of more than
twenty customer demonstrations at the show.”
Eoptolink (booth 4221), a leading optical transceiver supplier
for data center, enterprise and optical transmission networks, will
partner with Keysight to demonstrate for the first time a 400G ORST
(Optical Receiver Stress Test) automated standard-compliant solution
used in conjunction with high performance Keysight solutions like the
M8040A Bit Error Ratio Tester, M8195A Arbitrary Waveform Generator,
N1092C Digital Communication Analyzer, and N1076B clock recovery.
Innolight (booth 1909), a global leader in high-speed optical
transceivers, is using a wide array of Keysight’s solutions including
the company’s N1092C Digital Communication Analyzer and N1078A 64 GBd
clock recovery, in the live demonstration of their 400G QSFP-DD DR4
(SiPho-based), 400G QSFP-DD LR4 and 200G coherent CFP transceivers for
data center and metro applications.
Accelink (booth 5001), a leading opto-electronic components
supplier, will demonstrate its new solutions for 400G-FR4 and 100G-DR1
for the datacenter with Keysight’s M8040A Bit Error Ratio Tester,
N1092C Digital Communication Analyzer, and N1078A 64 GBd clock
recovery high performance solutions.
AOI (booth 2431), a leading provider of fiber-optic access
network products for the internet datacenter, cable broadband,
fiber-to-the-home and telecom markets, will showcase Keysight’s M8040A
Bit Error Ratio Tester, N1092C Digital Communication Analyzer, and
N1078A 64 GBd clock recovery test solutions in their new 400G DR4/FR4
to 100G DR1/FR1 products.
Cloud Light (booth 6625), a market leader for providing
customized solutions for optical transceivers and active optical
cables for use in datacenters, will show 200G and 400G optical
transceivers with Keysight’s N1000A Wide-Bandwidth Oscilloscope and
N1092C Digital Communication Analyzer.
Molex (booth 2807), a leading global manufacturer of electronic
solutions, will show line rate 400G Ethernet traffic with Ixia’s
AresONE QSFP-DD over Molex’s new 3m QSFP-DD DAC in multiple switch
vendor demonstrations. Real-time analysis on AresONE will showcase
test results of pre-FEC (forward error correction) per lane BER (bit
error rate) performance that exceeds IEEE specifications.
Finisar (booth 3713), a global leader in optical
communications, will demonstrate QSFP-DD and OSFP optical transceiver
modules with Ixia’s 2nd generation 400GE AresONE test system. The
demonstration will consist of AresONE ports transmitting and receiving
up to 3.2 Tbps of live Ethernet test traffic to multiple switch
vendors within their booth and the Ethernet Alliance (EA) (booth 4749).
AresONE-400GE test systems will also be used for
interoperability testing of the latest 400GE-capable devices,
optical and copper interconnects, and network switches at the EA
- The Ixia
Source Photonics (booth 4021), a leading global provider
of innovative and reliable technology that enables communications and
data connectivity, will demonstrate the maturity of the 400GE
ecosystem, using its latest 400G-LR8 and DR4 QSFP-DD modules
and Ixia’s field-proven K400 QSFP-DD test systems in a multi-vendor
Juniper Networks (booth 2129), an industry leader in automated,
scalable and secure networks, will use QSFP-DD 400G-FR4 optics in
its 400G capable QFX5220 demonstration which will exchange full duplex
line rate 400G Ethernet traffic with the AresONE test system located
in the EA booth.
