Agilent Technologies Inc. today introduced a wide-wavelength, multi-rate optical module for the Agilent 86100C Infiniium digital communications analyzer (DCA-J).

The analyzer covers all wavelengths for 750 nm to 1650 nm, which previously required two or more different modules. It enables users to accurately characterize the transmission performance of components and systems that cross the boundary between telecom and datacom.

“Users are not limited to telecom test equipment, but can now also test datacom standards such as 4x Fibre Channel in one single module,” the company said.

“Designers and manufacturers of multi-port and multi-rate systems and components can use (it) to characterize optical transmission performance of all SONET/SDH, Ethernet and Fibre Channel technologies from 155 Mb/s through 11.3 Gb/s.”
