UNIQUE POL-MUX OSNR MEASUREMENT TECHNOLOGY
OSNR has long been recognized as a key performance indicator in wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) networks, because
it provides a multichannel assessment of signal quality in a very short period of time. In addition, OSNR can predict bit error rate
(BER) within just a few minutes, while typical BER tests must run for hours or days.
The IEC 61280-2-9 standard defines OSNR measurement as the power ratio between the
signal power and the noise at half the distance between the peaks. However, in ROADM or
40 Gbit/s systems, this method may lead to incorrect results, because the noise level between
the peaks is no longer directly correlated with the noise level at the channel wavelength.
EXFO’s in-band OSNR is the answer to this challenge.
For Pol-Mux signals at 40G and 100G, neither the IEC nor the in-band method work. This calls for a new measurement method:
Pol-Mux OSNR.
FIRST POL-MUX OSA IN THE MARKET
EXFO’s Pol-Mux OSA is the first third-party instrument for Pol-Mux OSNR measurements that is not limited to any specific
system vendor. The new commissioning assistant, which is the key feature of the new Pol-Mux OSA, is perfect for Pol-Mux OSNR
measurements during turn-up. Based on the channel shutdown method, it provides highly accurate amplified spontaneous emission
(ASE) OSNR measurements.
The commissioning assistant can be utilized after the user has first taken a measurement at the receiver with all of the channels turned
on, and then acquired a series of traces, each taken with one channel turned off. The Pol-Mux OSA then performs the Pol-Mux OSNR
calculations via a user-friendly wizard.
The commissioning assistant therefore greatly accelerates OSNR measurements based on the channel shutdown method,
and drastically reduces potential human errors. In addition, two standards-compliant calculation approaches are available in the
commissioning assistant: one compliant with the IEC-61282-12 standard (under revision), and the other compliant with the China
Communications Standards Association (CCSA) method YD/T 2147-2010.
IMPAIRMENT IDENTIFICATION FOR FASTER TROUBLESHOOTING
WDM networks are becoming increasingly complex, with new technologies being
deployed (tighter channel spacing, polarization-multiplexed signals, etc.) that increase
the number of potential causes for failure. While past impairment types were relatively
few and well-known (excessive loss, high dispersion, excessive ASE noise, etc.), these
newly deployed technologies give rise to previously uncommon impairments, such as
crosstalk and nonlinear effects.
This is now possible with EXFO’s WDM Investigator, which provides detailed information
about the signal and noise for each channel. The WDM Investigator provides information
on link characteristics, such as the presence of polarization-multiplexed signals or the
presence of carved noise due to filters or ROADMs. It also checks the presence of
several types of impairments (crosstalk, non-linear effects, carrier leakage and PMD pulse
spreading), and gives an assessment of their severity (OK, warning, risk).
HIGH RESOLUTION FOR DENSE SIGNAL ANALYSIS
With 33 pm (or ~4.5 GHz) resolution bandwidth defined as the FWHM of the OSA filter shape, the IQS-5240BP can analyze
all densely spaced signals, including important 25 GHz ITU-grid WDM signals, and any high-speed modulated lasers/emitters.
Combined with a very sharp rejection ratio (–35 dBc at 0.1 nm), the optical signal-to-noise ratio (OSNR) and modulated band
profile can be measured with high accuracy. To ensure accurate noise and broad signal power measurements, the noise-equivalent
bandwidth (NEB) of the OSA is calibrated at many points from 1250 nm to 1650 nm.
IQS-5240S-P/BP Optical Spectrum Analyzers
ANALYZE ANY WDM NETWORK
The IQS-5240S-P/BP OSA series covers your DWDM applications and all channel
spacings from 12.5 GHz DWDM to CWDM. This is what we call “no-compromise
performance,” whatever your network specificities and testing requirements may be.
FLEXIBLE AND POWERFUL AUTOMATION
Thanks to the IQS-600 platform’s Windows-based open
architecture and Ethernet connectivity, the IQS-5240S-P/BP
OSA test modules can be easily controlled remotely using
SCPI commands.
QUICKER SETUPS–EASIER TESTING
The application software has been designed to optimize all testing operations—boosting productivity.
Easy-to-use zooming
capabilities and quick
translation of the signal
trace.
Favorites button enables direct access
to your defined configuration list—right in
the field.
Discover button automatically adjusts the settings
to identify all channels in one easy step. It
automatically selects optimal settings for quick
system qualification.
Setups and test configurations can easily be
defined and stored in the instrument.
IQS-5240S-P/BP Optical Spectrum Analyzers
ADVANCED EDFA ANALYSIS
Since amplifiers are critical elements in all networks, it is crucial to ensure that they are optimized, that the
gain is well-distributed and that the output power is flat. Now, you can further optimize EDFAs by measuring
key parameters such as gain per channel, noise figure, gain flatness and gain slope. More importantly,
you can save and print this precious information.
DRIFT MEASUREMENTS
You can monitor power, wavelength and OSNR over time. Follow the evolution of these critical parameters,
set relative or absolute thresholds and get alarm notifications when they are crossed. You can also
visualize the current and historical status of all channels in a single interface called drift dashboard,
which enables you to view the WDM trace of any acquisition that displays a change of state (i.e., when
a threshold is crossed).
ACCURATE SPECTRAL TRANSMITTANCE
With the advent of larger spectral content through the implementation of 40G and 100G, knowing
the bandwidth of any given filter and the residual network bandwidth guarantees proper transmission.
The Spectral Transmittance software feature compares the filtered wavelength to the nominal one,
showing insertion loss, channel isolation and bandwidth at different power levels.
IN-DEPTH DFB LASER ANALYSIS
Make sure your transmitters are within specifications. With the DFB Laser Analysis feature, you can
characterize a DFB laser source for central wavelength, peak power, bandwidth, side-mode suppression
ratio (SMSR) and much more.
