Tektronix acquires Optametra

28 July 2011

The supplier of test, measurement, and monitoring products and solutions has announced the acquisition of Optametra. The details of the transaction were not disclosed.

Founded in 2007, Optametra is focused on coherent test for 100G and beyond. The company launched its 40G Coherent Lightwave Signal Analyser in March 2009 and followed that with a 100G later that same year.

“The emergence of coherent optical standards is creating a technology shift in the communications market and new testing challenges are emerging,” said Amir Aghdaei, President of Tektronix. “Combining Optametra with our next generation of performance oscilloscopes enables us to address this market with a robust solution for our customers. It strengthens our position in communications and optical, building our portfolio along with sampling scopes and BERTScopes.”

Robert Marsland, President and co-founder of Optametra, added: “We’re excited to be joining Tektronix. We see great opportunity in addressing these emerging challenges, and being part of Tektronix will enable us to grow.”
