Manufacturer Agilent Technologies

Keysight Technologies

Description :

Keysight's 81490A reference transmitter is optimized to offer excellent eye quality as a reference for testing 10 GbE-LR, -ER according to IEEE 802.3ae and according to 10 G FC Fibre Channel specifications. With the integration into the Keysight LMS platform it offers seamless operation with the N4917A optical receiver stress test solution.

The high modulation bandwidth of up to 35GHz enables to build test setups that deliver arbitrary optical modulated signals in combination with electrical waveform generators.
