ECOC 2022 Discoveries

ECOC 2022 in Basel, Switzerland, has come to an end - with Keysight having successfully discovered exciting new solutions at the largest exhibition on optical communications in Europe.


 The Keysight booth is ready.

The star here was our new M8199B 256 GSa/ s arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) which was introduced at the show. With more than 80 GHz bandwidth, the new AWG enables 160 Gbaud serial data generation at the highest signal quality. The M8199B was involved in a world record presented at ECOC: the highest symbol rate of 260 GBaud in coherent optical transmissions enabling the highest net bitrate of > 2 Tbit/s / carrier transmitted over standard single-mode fiber.

Another highlight was the PAM4-, PAM6- and PAM8 capable M8050A 120 GBaud BERT that enables 224Gbps designs. Validating next-gen optical designs with the DCA-X sampling oscilloscope N1000A and the new optical reference receiver N1032A which provides PAM4 analysis up to 120 GHz bandwidth. Keysight brought a validation solution for 400G and 800G optical transceiver modules.

Keysight also joined the Interconnect Forum (OIF) booth with the presentation of four demos: 400ZR-, CEI-112G-, 112-Gbps-Active- Optical-Cable- and groundbreaking CEI-224G testing.

So far that concludes our journey at ECOC. Check out Keysight Blog and Keysight Internet InfrastructureLinkedIn for our upcoming activities. 
And of course, we'll be able to provide personal demos of the new discoveries - whether you were at ECOC 2022 or not.
