The acquisition, which is Calnex’s second in 15 months and is for an undisclosed sum, increases the Calnex product line to include Luceo’s range of High Speed Optical Module testers complementing Calnex’s existing portfolio of Synchronisation testers and Network Emulators.
Luceo Technologies supplies the XBERT and Parallex multi-channel component testers for 100GbE applications with multiple functions such as Bit Error Rate Test, (BERT), clock sources, Jitter generators, optical power meters, switches and attenuators.
