Up to 36 continuous wave high power lasers in one box
IQS-2800 ITLA Tunable Laser Source
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 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.
- C, L, or A bands
- Up to thirty-six 15.5 dBm high power lasers
- 100 kHz linewidth with 10 pm resolution
- Software control and fully cascadeable
- ITU-grid mode, Coherent/OFDM Transmission, and WDM Network Emulation
Up to nine IQS-2800 modules can be inserted into an IQS-636 platform, for a total of 36 lasers. From there, multiple IQS-636 platforms can be cascaded and controlled via one simple and easy-to-use software application. Each laser can be controlled individually, or multiple lasers can be set to create tilt over a wavelength range. It can also automatically spread the lasers over the entire C band, for example.
The EXFO IQS-2800 is a cost-effective and versatile solution for various applications including coherent/OFDM transmission and WDM network emulation. It also operates in ITU-grid mode, which restricts the frequency tuning to 25 GHz spacing channels.
