QUEBEC CITY -- EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO, TSX: EXF) announced today the release of the IQS-2700 Tunable External Cavity Laser (ECL) for optical system and component testing applications.

The IQS-2700 Tunable ECL, housed inside the best-of-class IQS-500 Intelligent Test System, is the highest performance, small form-factor tunable laser source module on the market. Based on proven technology, it is available in three different configurations, including an S+C+L-band (1460 to 1625 nm) model optimized for coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM) and fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) testing. Other configurations are designed for the important C+L bands (1525 to 1625 nm) and E+S bands (1425 to 1525 nm).

The C+L-band laser has a high-power output, essential for amplifier and network element testing, while the other two models come with a low-noise power output, ideal for both stopband and passband filter characterization.

“Our high-end tunable ECL provides customers with the best of both worlds for their various test applications,” said EXFO’s Étienne Gagnon, EXFO’s Vice-President of Product Management—Optical Solutions and Communications. “The broad wavelength range offered by this two-slot module represents a cost-effective solution for system and component testing without sacrificing performance."
