high levels of port density. Keymile will be presenting its MileGate 2112, the latest member of the MileGate family, at ANGA COM for the first time. This represents a new addition to Keymile’s range of FTTB solutions. Designed like a pizza box, MileGate 2112 offers 16 ports and complements Keymile’s previous 8-port system with a solution for multi-home buildings. “We’re noticing a clear trend towards rising FTTB expansion and can now offer our customers an ideal response, even in larger multi-home buildings,” comments Lothar Schwemm, Keymile’s CEO. The company will also be presenting a further increase in its product range for passive optical fibre networks (PONs) at the broadband show. Applications such as cloud services are ever more frequently requiring symmetrical transmission rates downstream and upstream. Keymile’s response is to launch the XGS-PON card for MileGate 3510 by the end of this year. XGS-PON enables symmetrical transmission rates of 10 Gbps. Keymile is also working on NG-PON2 (Next Generation Passive Optical Network 2), the successor to the XGS-PON product generation. Data rates of up to 40 Gbps on the optical fibre will then be achieved via wavelength division multiplexing. on many levels, not the least of which are the severe test and validation challenges facing engineers as they race to bring 400G solutions to market,” said Sarah Boen, general manager, Wired Communications, Tektronix. “By delivering the industry’s first and only 56 GBd real-time solution with PAM4 support, we are leading the way to the next generation of high-speed networking in the data center.” Delivering ORR (optical reference receiver) performance for 56 GBd PAM4, the DPO7OE2 allows engineers to more easily and quickly troubleshoot optical devices using a complete set of powerful debug capabilities including software clock recovery for PAM4 and NRZ, triggering, error detection, and the ability to capture time correlated or contiguous record of a signal for offline analysis. It also features best-in-class optical sensitivity and lowest noise to accommodate low PAM4 signal-to- noise ratio and channel effects. The DPO7OE2 can also be used for legacy NRZ applications. Analysis packages support standard optical measurements including ER, AOP, OMA, eye height and eye width, as well as PAM4 IEEE and OIF-CEI standard specific measurements including TDECQ.

Keymile to present a broad portfolio for copper and optical fibre network solutions

Keymile will be showcasing its comprehensive portfolio for ultrafast, future-proof broadband access via copper and optical fibre lines at the ANGA COM, in hall 7 and on stand A11. The portfolio offers solutions for all types of

FTTx network architecture: Keymile has a range ofVDSL2/vectoring and products so that copper wire networks can be used in the best possible way. Thanks to the optical connection systems, network operators can implement active and passive network architecture with

Tektronix 56 GBd 400G PAM4 optical probe is industry first Tektronix introduces industry’s first 56 GBd 400G PAM4 optical probe for use with Tektronix DPO70000SX Series real-time oscilloscopes. Joining the award-winning 33 GHz DPO7OE1, the new 59 GHz DPO7OE2 single mode optical probe delivers performance and advanced debug capabilities designers need to troubleshoot 400G PAM4 components and reduce time to market. Compared to 100G with NRZ modulation, 400G with PAM4 signaling is far more complex and has substantially increased the time required for design validation, debug and troubleshooting cycles. The migration from NRZ to PAM4 modulation presents a number

of validation and debug challenges that only a real time oscilloscope-based solution is equipped to solve. “The switch to 400G and PAM4 is disruptive
