Optical Signal to Noise Ratio (OSNR) Measurement Fundamentals

Webinar Recording & Slides


The Optical Signal to Noise Ratio (OSNR) is one of the key contributors to network reliability and is especially crucial for network equipment manufacturers using high-speed rates of 10G or more. The need for higher data rates and to accurately measure OSNR of a modulated Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) signal is at its highest demand.

In this webinar, I will discuss general techniques to measure OSNR for both traditional and modulated optical signals. The goal of the webcast is to provide test engineers with key measurement considerations for performing OSNR measurements using an Optical Spectrum Analyzer or OSA.

During this webinar, you will learn: 
  • Typical OSA technologies and their characteristics
  • Methodologies for both manual and automated OSNR measurements
  • How to properly measure the OSNR of both modulated and non-modulated DWDM signals
The following people working in optical communications networking should attend: 
  • Design Engineers
  • Quality Engineers
  • Validation Engineers
  • Test Engineers
  • Application Engineers
