As network demands increase, long-haul communications are becoming more complex. Signaling has migrated from simple on-off keying to complex modulation formats such as DP-QPSK and PM-16QAM. Advanced test tools are required to test the latest communication systems for 100G, 400G, 1Tb/s and beyond.
Minimize the time to market for your coherent optical design with the Tektronix Tx/Rx solution. Future proof your test system with a scalable solution that is ready for 400G, has superior EVM and BER performance and allows customizable DSP analysis/visualization. Tektronix is the only test and measurement vendor that can offer a complete coherent optical test system from signal generation, to modulation, acquisition, and analysis.
