PAM4: The New Modulation Standard for HSE Serdes

In early 2017, Spirent launched the first dedicated test system for 200G, based on the use of 4x50GbE PAM4 technology. Longer term, knowledge of PAM4 will be important for PHY-to-MAC emulation in any Spirent service-provider tool. Test traditional Ethernet Carrier Ethernet and be ready as future IEEE standards emerge. Read our white paper to learn more about PAM4.

FEC for Ethernet: A New Path to Flexibility

Developers can experiment with proprietary FEC while retaining compatibility with Ethernet standards due to where the “extender sublayer,” or CDXS, sits giving hardware designers more freedom to experiment with error-correcting codes. Learn more about FEC and how Spirent’s 400/200/100/50GbE quad speed-test modules were first to market, and have been designed to support the mandatory FEC/PCS IEEE requirements.
