Driven by new cloud-based and mobile services and an increasing number of large-scale data centers, the demand for more bandwidth at lower power consumption continues to escalate. Advanced modulation formats are being deployed in long-haul and metro telecommunication systems, and data streams are being standardized to fill the new 100-G pipes.
"Researchers and transmission system designers will enjoy seeing 32-QAM dual-polarization modulation testing at 28 Gbaud," said Juergen Beck, general manager of Agilent's Digital and Photonic Test Division. "Plus, development and manufacturing engineers working with next-generation optical components and signals for systems at 40/100 G will be able to see our fast and accurate component-characterization and signal-analysis solutions. These solutions help reduce OPEX and CAPEX by speeding up component testing."
