Coherent Optical Products

Characterization of signals at 100G, 400G and beyond

Coherent Optical SolutionsAs 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. 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.
