Leading supplier of test, measurement and monitoring products and solutions, Tektronix, Inc. has announced the acquisition of Optametra, LLC, a pioneer in coherent test products. The combination of Optametra and Tektronix creates best-in-class analysis and performance to address emerging coherent optical standards.
Founded in 2007, Optametra is focused on coherent test for 100G and beyond. Optametra launched its 40G Coherent Lightwave Signal Analyzer in March 2009 and followed up with a 100G version later in the year.
Optametra continues to lead with products and customer support in the R&D and manufacturing spaces. The Optametra Signal Analysis Suite offers highly relevant information display and modulation formats as well as wide linewidth tolerance.
Amir Aghdaei, President of Tektronix comments that the emergence of coherent optical standards is creating a technology shift in the communications market with new testing challenges emerging in the process.
Combining Optametra with Tektronix’s next generation of performance oscilloscopes enables them to address this market with a robust solution for their customers. He adds that the acquisition strengthens their position in Communications and Optical, building their portfolio along with Sampling Scopes and BERTScopes.
