As module bitrates increased from 100Gbs so too did the complexity of the modules. Starting with DSP based signal conditioning and clock recovery and onwards to pluggable coherent optics, PAM-4 and CMIS. With this new level of complexity, we had to take a very different approach to module-to-pluggable optics development, debugging and validation. Specifically, the […]

Balancing test equipment availability with tight budgets and aggressive timelines can be challenging for any product development group. PCI Express® engineering teams are especially impacted, given the cost of equipment and pressure to get products to market quickly—even as testing environments become increasingly more complex. Product development teams have similar goals Faster debug for quicker […]

Xgig 5P16 Multi-User Image

Analyzer Bifurcation enables simultaneous multiple tests by multiple remote users so your testing can be completed faster Traditionally, PCI Express® protocol analysis is performed with one user conducting a single test on a dedicated, single function Analyzer. Now, multiple users can log into one VIAVI Xgig® 5P16 or 5P8 Analyzer at the same time to […]

Viavi Solutions Inc. (VIAVI) will showcase this week a range of products engineered to simplify and accelerate high-speed network test across all phases of the network lifecycle including development and system verification, manufacturing, turn up and installation, and troubleshooting and monitoring. The new products highlight the VIAVI presence at OFC 2021, taking place virtually from June […]

If you would like a more in-depth review of what the path forward with 800G pluggable optics may look like may we suggest watching Preparing the Way for 800G: 100G Electrical and 800G Pluggable Optics. —————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————– The creation of the 800G ecosystem has begun. Alpha samples of 800G OSFP modules have been demonstrated and we […]

One of the great challenges facing data communications is matching the silicon bandwidth with the face plate density. Today, switch silicon can process over 12 Tb/s. But getting this off the front panel at a reasonable density is a challenge. One direction is to move to faster Ethernet speeds. A great example of this is […]
