Viavi (VIAV) Boosts 800G Adoption With Enhanced ONT-800 XPM Modules

Viavi Solutions Inc. VIAV has extended the capabilities of ONT-800 XPM modules to accelerate the adoption of 800G products in the global market. The ONT-800 Optical Network Testers are highly-configurable, multi-protocol, multi-port test platform. These are required for system verification of optical transport integrated circuits and modules as well as for research & development purposes.

The ONT-800 enables reliable performance and has been specifically designed to deliver the bandwidth and power requirements for testing at 600G per lambda, and beyond. In fact, the ONT 800G FLEX XPM module is touted as the industry-first fully-integrated test product for pluggable 800G transponders based on 100G electrical lane speed. The upgraded version of the solution can now support QSFP-DD800 testing module.

Accretive demand for high-speed networking is leading network equipment manufacturers to rely more on lab testing and validation of 800G components. With error-free performance, the 800G components help in seamless migration toward advanced technology while ensuring smooth interoperability of future-proof equipment. Hence, the latest move to augment ONT-800 XPM modules for streamlined network infrastructure, especially in this digital era, comes as a major development.

Viavi’s shares have gained 33.2% compared with the industry’s growth of 29.6% in the past year.

It also provides unique applications that are particularly developed to tackle the challenges associated with 800G equipment and infrastructure.

Some of the applications are forward error correction analysis, TraCol and dynamic skew. Backed by these robust characteristics, the upgraded version of ONT-800 XPM modules are likely to not only accelerate 800G network equipment to market but also enhance Viavi’s test portfolio for the development of optical communications technology.
