BRACKNELL, UK – 26th July, 2017 – Tektronix, a leading worldwide provider of measurement solutions, will showcase the latest in optical test innovation for datacenter networking at ECOC 2017, the largest optical communications exhibition in Europe. The event features more than 300 companies from nearly 80 countries around the world to help the more than 5,000 attendees leverage the latest in optical innovations and meet insatiable consumer and business demand for more bandwidth and increased datacenter performance. Tektronix is excited to bring back its Open Technology Forum again this year as part of their stand, hosting industry experts from leading research and commercial companies to discuss the trends and opportunities for emerging optical communications designs.

“With 100G moving into production and 400G design efforts in full swing, the test challenges around characterization, verification and debug of both silicon and system designs have never been greater,” said Dean Miles, Market Development Manager, Performance Oscilloscopes, Tektronix EMEA. “As ECOC attendees will be able to see firsthand, Tektronix is well positioned to help our customers push the boundaries of higher data rates, emerging standards, and cutting-edge research while reducing time to market with our high-performance solutions.”

Datacenter networking technology providers are looking to continuously increase the capacity and precision of high speed data transfers. Tektronix offers a comprehensive set of performance solutions to characterize electrical and optical performance that will be demonstrated at ECOC in stand 166, including:

  • The DSA8300 sampling oscilloscope with an 80GHz optical sampling module showing support for IEEE 802.3bs based 400G optical testing for TDECQ, including new advances in high-sensitivity single-mode/multi-mode optical measurements for NRZ and PAM-4 up to 28GBd.
  • The DPO70000SX 70GHz ATI performance oscilloscope analyzing single shot PAM-4 signals with live triggering and post-equalized error detection for 400G standards.
  • An end-to-end demonstration of the industry’s only optical modulation analysis software supporting multi-OMA systems, featuring the AWG70000 Series Arbitrary Waveform Generator, and the DPO70000SX oscilloscope for applications such as spatial division multiplexing and more.
  • New announcements that will give PAM4 designer’s the option of using either a sampling or real-time oscilloscope when debugging PAM4 optical systems.
  • In addition, attendees can stop by the Tektronix stand 166 to pick up an educational poster on PAM4 testing.

The ECOC Exhibition is the key meeting place for decision makers from across the fibre optic communications technology industry. For more than 20 years, ECOC has drawn attendees from all corners of the globe to meet and greet, teach and learn, make connections and move business forward. ECOC 2017 is being held September 18-20 in Gothenburg, Sweden. For more information, go to http://www.ecocexhibition.com.
