Ixia AresONE Cabling for 400GE and 4x100GE NRZ Testing

This video shows the industry’s first, cost-effective test solution that enables data center operators to leverage 400GE-capable test ports to link to and test legacy 100GE network equipment.

This combined Pulse Amplitude Modulation (PAM)-4-to-Non-Return to Zero (NRZ) signaling system between Keysight’s proven Ixia AresONE High-Performance 400G Ethernet technologies (400GE) test system, interconnected to legacy 100GE NRZ switch ports, using Credo’s unique HiWire™ copper, Active Electrical Cable (AEC) technology. The AEC provides the speed-shift to the signaling rates, forward error correction (FEC) conversion, and low power.
