Product Description

The Agilent 71612B error performance analyzer addresses applications for high speed digital testing up to 12 Gb/s, including R&D and manufacturing test of lightwave components and sub-assemblies, advanced computer technology and high-capacity communication systems. The analyzer operates from 1 to 12 Gb/s and will operate down to 100 Mb/s with a clock-source extension. Features include high quality waveforms, versatile triggering, and sufficient memory for running multiple SONET and SDH frames at OC-192/STM-64. Use error location analysis to help identify the cause of pattern-dependent errors.

Powerful application software to speed measurement time. E4543A Q Factor and Eye Contour application software is designed to simplify the characterization of high speed optical communication links, automatically calculating the Q figure of merit.

Adaptable application software for full functional testing. E4544A OC-192/STM-64 application software automatically constructs SONET/SDH frames for functional test of network elements. Features including error and alarm generation plus CID stressing patterns.
