Lab Ethernet Testing – 400G and Beyond

Register now to view this webinar

400G changed everything.  Speed and physics created testing complexities that require a new approach. 

Led by Dr. Paul Brooks, technology expert for VIAVI Optical Transport solutions, this webinar explores the state of Ethernet today from 100G all the way to 3.2Tb, and introduces key differentiating factors that change the way we test.  It takes a close look at new 400G themes like PAM4 and FEC coding—and the importance of understanding FEC margin and error fingerprint to be sure systems can scale reliably at increasingly higher speeds across tens of thousands of deployments.  Module management (CMIS) as well as power and cooling are also addressed.
