Tektronix and Coherent Solutions Announce Exclusive Collaboration to Provide Fully Integrated Optical Communications Platform

Beijing, China, March 20, 2020 – Tektronix and Coherent Solutions today announced an exclusive collaboration agreement to provide new and existing customers with a fully integrated optical communications platform to meet the ever-increasing demand for communications in the telecommunications, datacom, defense/aerospace and semiconductor global markets growing demand.

“Tektronix and Coherent Solutions are fully committed to providing world-leading test and measurement solutions for high-bandwidth optical communications,” said Amy Taylor, general manager of high-performance solutions at Tektronix. “The combination of Coherent Solutions IQTransmitter products and Tektronix AWG products creates a complete optical communication platform.”

The two companies will work together to provide a fully integrated OMA system featuring Tektronix DPO70000SX/DX oscilloscopes and Coherent Solutions IQReceivers. This platform can generate coherent modulated signals, such as 64QAM, to meet the needs of the high-speed communications market. Complex optical modulation is a key part of the development process for engineers looking for test and measurement solutions to support the launch of products at 400G/800G and transfer rates up to 1TB/s.

The integration of Tektronix oscilloscopes with Coherent Solutions DSPs paves the way for engineers to efficiently develop coherent transceivers, an efficient process that not only meets current standards but also goes beyond them for advanced research.

Andy Stevens, CEO of Coherent Solutions, said, “As engineers keep pace with high-speed optical trends and deploy coherent technologies in new areas, interest in OMA systems is at an all-time high. Now is the time for us to leverage our expertise and large There is no better time to do it. We believe that our partnership with Tektronix will bring clear advantages to our customers and the wider optical communications industry for years to come.”
