VeEX Inc. has added the MPM-400AR dual-port 400 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) QSFP-DD PAM4 test module for the MPA Multi-Protocol Analyzer Series platform. The module’s dual ports enable up to 800G of throughput, according to the company.
The MPM-400AR module supports dual simultaneous and independent 400GbE QSFP-DD ports along with dual QSFP56 and SFP56 ports to enable testing of a wide range of optical transceivers and port and data rates via the same module. Used within the MPA platform along with the test system’s existing 10/100-Gbps modules (see, for example, "VeEX unveils MPM-600G module, for high-density 100G test via MPA Series Platform"), addition of the MPM-400AR module enables technicians to use the MPA series in a variety of test scenarios. The platform also enables test automation via support of multiple APIs, including native Python. VeEX says the MPA will provide benefits in NEMs’ R&D/SVT labs, in manufacturing, and with service providers who need an all-in-one toolset for verification of PAM4 Ethernet/transport technologies.
“At VeEX we strive to provide innovative test solutions and technology support to facilitate the industry’s demanding testing challenges of delivering next-generation products and services. The new MPM-400AR is the result of such commitment,” said Keith Cole, vice president of product marketing, NEMs for VeEX. “Building upon our existing CFP8 test module (MPM-400G) and the first and only 400G handheld test set in the market (RXT-6400), the MPM-400AR raises the bar for native 400G PAM4 testing, in a compact, scalable, yet powerful rack-mount form factor.”
