Calnex Solutions today announced the acquisition of Luceo Technologies GmbH headquartered in Berlin, Germany. This is the second acquisition Calnex has closed in the last 15 months. The acquisition, which is for an undisclosed amount, increases the Calnex product line to include Luceo’s range of High Speed Component testers complementing Calnex’s existing portfolio of Synchronisation testers and Network Emulators.
Luceo Technologies supplies the XBERT and ParalleX multi-channel BERTs supporting interface rates up to 28Gb/s in the latest 4x28G BERT for 100GbE applications. The Luceo products are used in a wide variety of telecommunications applications including Fibre Channel, Infiniband, Optical Component testing (QSFP, CFP, CXP, AOC) etc.
“High Speed telecommunications 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 XBERT and ParalleX product line to reach a much broader range of customers and applications” said Stephan Mannshardt, CEO of Luceo Technologies.
