Lightwave Mainframes

The Agilent Technologies Lightwave solution platform addresses different measurement needs for passive and active Lightwave components. The platform is the key component to combining the Agilent Lightwave modules and their interconnection by providing features like clocking and triggering and the required software control for test solutions.

Built-in applications and an available applications software (PFL) make it easy to setup each kind of high-performance optical test.
