Luceo BER tester

LINLITHGOW, SCOTLAND, 9th May 2019 – Calnex Solutions today announced the acquisition of Luceo Technologies GmbH headquartered in Berlin, Germany. 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. The Luceo products are used in R&D and in production for evaluating components used in datacenters and telecoms including technologies like Ethernet, Fiber Channel, Infiniband, etc.

“High Speed optical component and sub-system testing is a hot application area” said Tommy Cook, CEO of Calnex Solutions. “These applications require products with signal integrity & multiple ports. The acquisition of Luceo Technologies enables Calnex to effectively address these key applications as the Luceo product portfolio provides this flexibility with its multi-channel BERTs.”

“The Calnex acquisition of Luceo Technologies enables the Parallex product line to achieve the next level of technology and to support a much broader range of customers and applications” said Stephan Mannshardt, CEO of Luceo Technologies.
