As network demands increase, long-haul communications are becoming more complex. 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.
Tektronix offers a number of different signal generation instruments capable of generating coherent optical waveforms. The AWG70000 Series can reach sampling rates as high as 50GSa/s with 10 bits vertical resolution, enabling creation of multi-level signals such as 16QAM or 64QAM. The PPG3000 Series is capable of generating patterns up to 32Gb/s and offers 1, 2, or 4 channels in a single instrument for creation of dual-polarization I-Q waveforms.
The OM5110 Multi-format Optical Transmitter provides the flexibility to modulate all of the most common coherent optical formats at rates up to 46GBaud. The OM5110 Multi-Format Optical Transmitter is a C-and L-Band transmitter capable of modulating the most common coherent optical modulation formats such as PM-QPSK and PM-16QAM. For customers who are testing multi-carrier systems, OM2012 Tunable Laser provides extra lasers in both C- and L-band.
The OM4106D Coherent Lightwave Signal Analyzer, together with the MSO/DPO70000 Series oscilloscopes, make an ideal coherent optical signal acquisition system. The OM4106D optical modulation analyzer provides laboratory instrument-grade optics and optical-to-electrical conversion capable of handing the latest coherent optical signals up to 60GBaud. The OM2210 Coherent Receiver Calibration Source provides a simple solution for calibrating the OM4106D or other customer-owned coherent receivers.
Developed specifically for coherent optical analysis, the OM1106 Coherent Lightwave Signal Analyzer software provides state-of-the-art demodulation, measurements, and visualization tools for all of today’s coherent optical standards including 400G superchannels. The OM1106 analysis software is available separately or included with the OM4106D Coherent Lightwave Signal Analyzer.
