InnoLight Uses VIAVI ONT-600 400G Test Platform to Speed Development of Next-Generation Optical Modules
San Jose, Calif., September 20, 2018 – VIAVI Solutions (NASDAQ: VIAV) today announced that InnoLight Technology, a leading vendor of high-speed optical transponders, has used the ONT-600 400G test platform to accelerate development of InnoLight’s optical modules. Both companies will be present at ECOC next week: VIAVI will showcase high-speed optical test solutions at booth #506; and InnoLight will have a live demo to show 400G QSFP-DD FR4 and 400G OSFP FR4 testing with the VIAVI ONT-600 400G at booth # 245.
InnoLight and VIAVI will continue to work closely on development of next-generation modules, with the ONT-600 supporting development of both hardware and software, as well as system verification. In preparation for ECOC, the two companies verified interoperability between 400G QSFP-DD and 400G OSFP modules based on FR4 optics. The VIAVI ONT was used to generate and analyze 400G Ethernet traffic and InnoLight provided an QSFP-DD module and an OSPF module.
“In the highly complex 400G product technologies, a reliable and versatile test platform is crucial to our success in developing our modules on time while assuring optimal performance,” said Osa Mok, Chief Marketing Officer, InnoLight. “We are happy that VIAVI is the leader in this respect and that the VIAVI ONT 400G tester is a part of the test and verification core in our development process.”
