announced today the introduction of the IQS-2800 ITLA Tunable Laser Source,
jointly developed with Coherent Solutions and exclusively available from EXFO.
The recent bandwidth explosion is pushing next-generation transmission systems
to new capacity limits requiring the use of complex high-order modulation
formats like dual-polarization quadrature phase-shift keying (DPQPSK). Housed
in the IQS-636 platform, the IQS-2800 is a modular test solution that provides
researchers and engineers with a comprehensive way to design and test future
ultra-high-capacity network architectures. The lasers are tunable over the C
