10 July 2015 – Keysight Technologies introduced the industry’s first compliance test application for systems using MGBASE-T networking applications. The Keysight U7236A and U7236B 10GBASE-T and MGBASE-T test applications help network design engineers turn-on and debug MGBASE-T Ethernet networking systems faster. This is accomplished by automating the execution of physical-layer tests on Keysight Infiniium 9000, S-Series, 90000A, V-Series, 90000 X-, 90000 Q- and Z-Series oscilloscopes with up to 63 GHz bandwidth.
Growing consumer demand for bandwidth from wireless networks and data center networking hardware is driving the need for increased network capacity. MGBASE-T Ethernet technology offers faster data transmission, which boosts bandwidth across these networks.
The Keysight MGBASE-T Ethernet compliance applications provide an automated test script that allows engineers to quickly and reliably test MGBASE-T Ethernet transmitter signals at speeds of 2.5G and 5G. Engineers can automate the compliance application to run over extended periods of time, and they can add incremental user-defined tests if desired.
