SANTA ROSA, CALIFORNIA – Keysight Technologies has announced that Jay Alexander, senior vice president and chief technology officer, has been appointed to the Visiting Committee on Advanced Technology (VCAT) for the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
Keysight Technologies, Inc.
Keysight Technologies’ Ixia Solutions Group has launched the iBypass DUO next generation bypass switch. Providing two management ports, the iBypass DUO offers 10G and 1G support, allowing network security teams to switch inline security tools in and out of network without bringing down the network or creating a point of failure.
Keysight Technologies has launched Test Asset Optimization Services, which the company says is the industry’s first integrated solution that measures in real-time, asset true utilisation and health.
Keysight’s Test Asset Optimization Services is designed to eliminate the need for companies to assign personnel to manually record when instruments are in use and making measurements. It aims to allow customers to improve return on investments by optimising capital and operating expenses to meet test demands in research and development through manufacturing.
Keysight Technologies has launched what it says is the industry’s first software platform that integrates design, test, measurement and analysis. PathWave is an open, scalable, and predictive software platform that integrates hardware and software at every stage in the product development workflow.
The M8040A from Keysight Technologies is a highly integrated 64Gbaud bit error ratio tester (BERT) that makes it easier for engineers in validation labs and R&D to perform physical layer characterisation of receivers for emerging 400G data centre interfaces.
R&D and validation labs that need to characterise high-speed receivers are facing new test challenges, such as tighter timing margins, channel loss, non-linearity, level interference and crosstalk effects. Test efficiency and accuracy are essential, and that’s where the M8040A shines, according to Keysight.
Keysight Technologies has introduced two software updates for its real-time oscilloscope products. The updates are available in the Infiniium oscilloscope firmware version 5.60.
The N8827A PAM-4 analysis software update adds bit-error rate (BER) capabilities for four-level pulse amplitude modulation (PAM-4) based signals. The N8834A MultiScope software update adds support for Keysight's InfiniiVision oscilloscopes.
Keysight Technologies has introduced measurement application software designed to help engineers quickly and accurately measure and quantify PAM-4 (pulse amplitude modulation with four amplitude levels) signals.
Keysight Technologies has introduced the 81607A, 81608A and 81609A tunable laser sources, a range of modules for the Keysight 8164B lightwave measurement system designed for high-throughput testing of optical components.
The new modules extend the product family that debuted in March 2015 with the Keysight 81606A tunable laser source, an instrument with sub-picometer tuning repeatability and best-in-class wavelength accuracy that is maintained even in full-speed, two-way sweeps.
Research into the latest 200G, 400G and Terabit communication applications demands a new class of signal generator, according to Keysight Technologies. The company has responded by adding a 92-GSa/s, 32-GHz modular instrument to its portfolio of arbitrary waveform generators.
As data demand ramps ever higher, researchers are looking to innovative amplifier designs to help transport a broader light spectrum through optical fibres, finds Andy Extance
Duncan Ellis shares his views about the increased focus on automation from network operators, and how the physical layer has so far stubbornly resisted the move
Switching off copper networks where fibre has been deployed is the end game, so why are so few operators doing it, wonders Pauline Rigby
With demand for fibre to the premises increasing, Keely Portway looks at the role training plays in ensuring installation skills remain available to meet this growing demand
