Microlease Inks Western EMEA Deal with Tektronix
Microlease is Only Western European Partner to Offer New Tektronix BERTScope for 100G systems
ECOC, Cannes, France, 22nd September 2014: Microlease plc., the leading test and measurement equipment management company, today announced an agreement on a 6 month project with Tektronix, Inc., a leading worldwide provider of test, measurement and monitoring instrumentation, allowing it to offer the new BERTScope® BSA286CL. Microlease will be the only provider in the UK, France, Germany and Italy using its full range of financial solutions for the manufacturer’s equipment: Tektronix-Rent, Tektronix-Try, Tektronix-Defer and Tektronix-Lease.
Commenting, Dean Miles, EMEA Technical Marketing Manager from Tektronix said, “By partnering with Microlease, we are able to offer our customers unprecedented flexibility in accessing and using BERTScope technology. By sourcing through Microlease, customers can access the instrument that they require cost-effectively based on their needs in terms of frequency of use and budget situation. They can use rental to obtain immediate use of an instrument, fulfilling the measurement needs of their project and allowing full evaluation of the equipment. Moreover customers can also then move to longer term leasing or outright purchase arrangements, including a ‘Try’ option that gives rebates for the rental period. Microlease’s footprint with customers as a total solutions provider made it the ideal choice for this technology. For many of our customers working on short to mid-term projects, having alternative financial solutions to source the equipment when they actually need it, is vitally important”
George Acris, Director of Marketing, Europe at Microlease added, “The Tektronix BERTScope Bit Error Rate Tester Series provides a new approach to signal integrity measurements of serial data systems. With the new addition, this Series is now able to fully test 100G communications standards. We are proud and delighted that Tektronix has decided to partner with Microlease on a new instrument which will be highly significant to its users, including many in the Semiconductor and Defence industries as well as many other sectors. ”
The Tektronix BSA286CL BERTScope Bit Error Rate Tester is being exhibited in Europe for the first time at ECOC, Europe’s largest optical communications event. The BSA286CL is designed for the low intrinsic jitter and precision impairments required for testing a broad set of 100G communications standards including OIF-CEI, CAUI, and InfiniBand Standards. The BSA286CL is the industry's first to fully meet these precision impairment and error analysis requirements for 100G systems, along with ease of use which BERTScopes are renowned for.
Microlease was presented with the highly prestigious Company of the Year award for Best Practise in Global Test and Measurement Rental and Leasing Services at Frost & Sullivan’s annual Growth, Innovation and Leadership awards ceremony in London in May 2014.
