Agilent supports OIF CEI optical network tests
Agilent Technologies has introduced a software tool for its Infiniium 86100D DCA-X oscilloscope which is an automated application for the Optical Internetworking Forum’s Common Electrical Interface (OIF CEI) 3.0 Implementation Agreement.
Designed to support networks running at 25 to 28Gbit/s, the OIF CEI 3.0 Implementation Agreement covers eight interfaces with nearly 120 tests. Several other standards also address tests at these data rates.
“Developers are working quickly to create and launch new devices to accommodate higher data rates, and they will appreciate the significant improvement in test times offered by these new applications,” said Jay Alexander, v-p and general manager of Agilent’s oscilloscope business.
Agilent N1012A compliance test software performs a wide range of oscilloscope-based and network analyser-based tests for the OIF CEI 3.0 Implementation Agreement.
The software also provides 5- to 28Gbit/s physical-layer transmitter measurements for engineers designing to the requirements of OIF CEI 3.0, including the 28G-VSR (very short reach) interface.
Agilent has also introduced the N1019A user-defined application expands the capability of the existing N5467A user-defined application for Agilent’s real-time oscilloscopes to include the 86100D DCA-X.
Users can use it to create their own tests, automated test groups, test limits with descriptions, measurement configurations, and customised reports.
