Coherent Terabit Research

The next generation of coherent optical transceivers will operate at symbol rates around 100 GBd and beyond. We will demonstrate a test solution that mimics the function of a coherent transceiver. It generates signals with flexible modulation formats for this speed class using our M8194A arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) and analyzes these signals with our groundbreaking N4391B optical modulation analyzer (OMA) based on our UXR real-time oscilloscope family. This solution enables full transceiver analysis at the new speed class to verify and improve their performance.

Solution Capabilities:

  • Lowest noise 110 GHz OMA​
  • Industry’s fastest AWG
  • QAM beyond 100 GBd
