New Products from EXFO – Tunable Laser Source & Matrix Optical Switch
EXFO has recently launched two new products that Elliot Scientific is able to offer to the UK and Irish telecom sectors.
IQS-2800 ITLA Tunable Laser Source – Up to 36 continuous wave high power lasers in one box
The recent upsurge in bandwidth requirements by carriers is pushing next-generation transmission systems to achieve new capacity limits via use of complex high-order modulation formats like dual-polarisation quadrature phase-shift keying (DPQPSK).
The new EXFO IQS-2800 is a modular test solution, housed in the IQS-636 platform, that provides researchers and engineers with a comprehensive way to design and test these future ultra-high-capacity network architectures. The lasers are continuous wave (CW), tunable, with a high-power output, narrow 100 kHz linewidth, and 10 pm resolution tunability over the C, L or A band.
MXS-9100 MEMS MxN Matrix Optical Switch – Any number of M input fibres can connect to any number of N output fibres
The new MXS-9100 optical switch is the perfect solution for centralised instrument sharing or automated testing in manufacturing. With its all-optical cross-connect technology, the MXS-9100 provides a unique combination of low insertion loss, fast protected switching and high reliability required in the lab or manufacturing environment. It allows any of M input fibres to connect to any of N output fibres in a fully non-blocking manner.
