W ith the transition to 800GE pluggable optics on front-panel ports, interconnect and interconnect reliability require a new verification cycle to support carrier-class environments. These high-speed interfaces present a unique challenge because new 800GE-capable silicon devices, optical transceivers, and high-bandwidth Ethernet speeds must be accurately tested.

SANTA ROSA, California. -- August 3, 2022 - Keysight Technologies announced that it has partnered with Nokia to successfully demonstrate the first public 800GE test, proving the readiness of next-generation optics for carriers and network operators.

The readiness test was conducted at Nokia's private SReXperts customer event in Madrid in June 2022 and included Keysight's AresONE 800GE Layer 1-3 800GE line speed test platform and the Nokia 7750 Service Routing platform. AresONE was used to test and qualify Nokia's FP5 network processor and 800GE pluggable optics. Among the Nokia platforms used in the validation were the FP5-based 7750 SR-1x-48D, which supports 48 800GE ports, and the 7750 SR-1se, which supports 36 800GE ports.

The Nokia FP5 silicon provides 112G SerDes, enabling 800GE hardware support. FP5 enables networks to efficiently expand capacity and IP subscriber services at the same time, while maintaining integrity, providing advanced protection against the rise of network security threats, and reducing power consumption. Nokia is the first vendor to deliver high-density 800GE systems this year with platforms that support 36 x 800GE ranges on compact fixed platforms up to 432 800GE ports in the flagship 7750 SR-14s.

Ram Periakaruppan, group vice president and general manager of Keysight's Network Test and Security Solutions, said: "The unique combination of the Keysight AresONE 800GE test system and the Nokia 7750 Service Router addresses the interoperability challenges of 112 Gbps electrical band signaling and supports the service community in accelerating authentication. provider-class 800GE devices and network infrastructure in a multi-service environment."

Ken Kutzler, vice president of IP Routing Hardware at Nokia, said: "Nokia's industry-leading, innovative FP5 silicon is the first network processor silicon that enables high-performance routing and meets the requirements of the 800GE network refresh cycle. The Keysight AresONE The combination of 800GE and Nokia's FP5 and 7750 SR platforms meets the performance and control needs of our 800GE IP router interfaces."

Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that provides advanced design and validation solutions to accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced that it has partnered.

Nokia successfully presents the first public 800GE test, which validates the readiness of next-generation optics for service providers and network operators.

With the transition to 800GE pluggable optics on the front panel ports, a new validation cycle is required for link reliability in carrier-class environments. These high-speed interfaces create unique challenges such as new 800GE-capable silicon devices, optical transceivers and high bandwidth. Ethernet speed needs to be checked exactly.
