EXFO Introduces 400 Gbps Test

EXFO introduced an integrated 400G line rate test solution for simulating real-life services at 400 Gbps link capacity while monitoring key QoS metrics.

EXFO's new IQS-610P-HS-400G test solution provides the ability to fill a 400 Gbps data pipe. It also provides the flexibility to configure up to four 100 Gbps client interfaces simultaneously with full traffic profiling, shaping and monitoring capabilities.

"In a highly competitive market, NEMs are striving to deliver high-speed transmission solutions that meet carriers' need for speed and optical reach while improving compensation for optical impairments," said Claudio Mazzuca, Vice-President of EXFO's Transport and Service Assurance Division. "Thanks to EXFO's powerful and open test architecture, NEMs and carriers have the assurance of knowing that their new 400G systems are proven capable of handling any of the demanding services that may be placed on them in the future. In addition, 400G development and early trials can be complex and cumbersome to perform without the proper test solution."
