EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering Inc. www.exfo.com  has acquired PicoSolve, Inc., a Swedish test and measurement company that designs oscilloscopes for 40G and 100G R&D, manufacturing and deployment applications.

 

PicoSolve, founded in 2004 by researchers at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden, caters to network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) involved in the design and production of next-generation optical networks.

 

With bandwidth demand growing exponentially worldwide, NEMs are increasing the transmission rates of their optical networks to 40 Gbit/s and, in the near future, to 100 Gbit/s, the Quebec City-based company said in a statement.
