Massive data flow from 5G, artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), Internet of Things (IoT) and autonomous vehicles are driving explosive traffic growth. This is creating an unprecedented demand for bandwidth everywhere in the network and data centre, 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.
Keysight is showing test systems 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.
“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,” said Peerlings.
Eoptolink, a leading optical transceiver supplier for data centre, enterprise and optical transmission networks, is working with Keysight on 400G ORST (Optical Receiver Stress Test) automated standard compliant solution used conjunction with the M8040A Bit Error Ratio Tester, M8195A Arbitrary Waveform Generator, N1092C Digital Communication Analyzer, and N1076B clock recovery.
Optical transceiver maker Innolight is using Keysight’s N1092C Digital Communication Analyzer and N1078A 64 GBd clock recovery in a 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, an opto-electronic components supplier, is showing its 400G-FR4 and 100G-DR1 for the datacentre with Keysight’s M8040A Bit Error Ratio Tester, N1092C Digital Communication Analyzer, and N1078A
