EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering Inc. 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, provides ultra-high-speed optical sampling oscilloscopes to network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) involved in the design and production of next-generation optical networks.

With bandwidth demand growing exponentially, 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.
