QUEBEC CITY, Feb. 12, 2014 — Exfo Inc. has added the WDM-Aware, a coherent Pol-Mux 40G/100G optical signal-to-noise ratio (OSNR) analyzer, to its FTB/IQS 5240S-P and FTB/IQS-5240BP optical spectrum analyzer (OSA) lines. The instrument is for commissioning and troubleshooting 40G/100G coherent systems on metro and long-haul dense wavelength division multiplexing networks.
The instrument’s coherent channel measurement is based on amplified spontaneous emission noise; automatic measurements are taken via the channel turn-off method. The analysis capabilities are available as a software option that can be added to the company’s existing in-band OSAs, converting them to Pol-Mux OSAs.
