Viavi Solutions has expanded its ONT solution portfolio with the 800G FLEX XPM Module, a fully integrated test product for pluggable 800G transceivers that use 100G electrical lane speed, with integrated test applications. 

The pandemic has forced a global reordering of network traffic patterns, complexity and scale. Enterprises are accelerating technology modernisation plans, and service providers are upgrading their networks and data centers with higher transport speeds, cloud-native architectures, and machine learning. In preparation, industry groups are issuing 800G specifications, 800G-ready silicon is emerging, and the optical networking ecosystem is readying 800G class modules.

The new module provides a range of critical test and measurement capabilities that manufacturers need to design and validate 800G optical modules based on 100G electrical signaling. The module has been designed for IC development and validation test, 800G transponder testing and vendor selection, system verification test, and manufacturing test. Key features include: support for 2x400GE, 8x100GE, 4x200GE and 1x800G unframed; dynamic skew; forward error correction (FEC) validation; and automation integration with the VIAVI ONT family.
