This webinar is the second episode of a series around optical and high-speed challenges faced by organizations in India that are involved in the manufacturing, design and research of state-of-the-art technologies. Each instalment explores specific challenges and appropriate testing solutions to prevent or solve issues.
Optical networks are getting fast and furious as they speed up to 400G and beyond. The need for speed is being driven by bandwidth-hungry applications from data centers and wireless including 5G. To fuel the race and ramp up the pace, several next-gen transceivers and high-speed components are being developed and mass produced at rapid rates. Manufacturers need to test thousands of units every day; they need testing solutions that are fast, extremely reliable and ready for automation in order to save time during manufacturing while guaranteeing the quality of the units produced.
This webinar reviews best practices when testing optical transceivers ranging from 1G to 400G. It details the end-to-end characterization of pluggables on the electrical side, client side and optical side of manufactured units.
The next installment in this webinar series is:
