Explore the latest in optical networking and communications solutions

Test PICs with Automation

Keysight and FormFactor, Inc. plan to demonstrate PIC test solutions to simplify and speed workflows — including probe positioning, polarization alignment, and accurate measurement and analysis.


Test 110 GHz Parametric

The Keysight N4372E lightwave component analyzer offers 110 GHz bandwidth and supports the full 1260 nm to 1620 nm wavelength range for both optical transmitter testing and optical receiver testing, thanks to a calibrated traceable transmitter to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

Test 224 Gb/s Electrical Tx

Join us for a demonstration of the Keysight Infiniium UXR-Series UXR1102A 110 GHz high-performance real-time oscilloscope and the Keysight N1046A remote sampling heads on a Keysight N1000A digital communications analyzer featuring the latest physical layer techniques and methods required for 224 Gb/s electrical characterization needs.

Test 224 Gb/s Electrical Rx

Join us to see the Keysight M8050A high-performance Bit Error Ratio Testers (BERT) to validate and characterize digital receivers operating up to 224 Gb/s. Combined with the Keysight M8067A ISI channel boards, the M8050A’s channel emulation functionality offers unpreceded flexibility to test a wide range of applications without any setup reconfiguration. We will demonstrate the digital receiver test on a 224 Gb/s digital retimer for next-generation networking applications.

Test 224 Gb/s Optical Tx 

Keysight will demonstrate the N1032A/B, the industry’s only reference receiver for testing 100 GBd class transmitters. When driven by the Keysight M8199B arbitrary waveform generator (AWG), you can verify and achieve the high-performance required for next-generation 800G / 1.6T systems.

Test up to 160 GBd & Beyond

Demonstration of the industry’s fastest arbitrary waveform generator (AWG), the Keysight M8199B AWG with bandwidth exceeding 80 GHz with the Keysight N4391B optical modulation analyzer with 110 GHz bandwidth. Our experts will demonstrate unprecedented signal quality at symbol rates of 160 GBd and beyond using the M8199B AWG and the Keysight N1046A DCA sampling head modules.

Test TRX Module Interoperability

Keysight demonstrates the G800GE-02, which tests optical module interoperability and link quality determined by bit error ratio (BER), forward error correction (FEC), FEC margin, and frame loss ratio (FLR) with CMIS 5.0-based module status monitoring.

Improve Optical TRX Test FlexOTO

Keysight demonstrates the new Keysight FlexOTO optical test optimization software to show the  improvement in overall test efficiency and optimization of DCA-M test hardware utilization for high channel count Tx manufacturing testing.
