400G Ethernet is now close to standardization and we are already seeing successful & exciting results from early field trials. Many of the novel aspects of 400G Ethernet pose significant test and measurement challenges and this presentation highlights the revolutionary aspects of 400G technology and how it drives new concepts in test and measurement. From PAM-4 modulation in the electrical and optical domain to the challenges of validating margin in FEC based links the presentation explores how the T&M community within the Ethernet Alliance is ready to take 400G to widespread and pain-free deployment.


The key takeaway will be an introduction to new tools and practices to ensure successful design and validation of the emerging high-speed Ethernet products.
