EXFO Releases Open Analytics Platform for Test and Assurance Market

 

  • Xtract delivers full end-to-end (E2E) services and network lifecycle management

QUEBEC CITY, CANADA, January 29, 2015 — EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFOTSX: EXF)  today unveiled its new open analytics platform offering operators an avant-garde approach to quality management through innovations in adaptable analytics and workflow automation. With the evolution of the EXFO Xtract platform, EXFO has merged its expertise in the automation of service turn-up, active testing, passive monitoring and infrastructure polling into a comprehensive E2E solution that enables operators to greatly improve time-to-market while guaranteeing exceptional quality for new services through an extendable end-to-end quality management solution.

The competitive landscape within the telecom industry is putting tremendous pressure on service providers to introduce new services faster, while ensuring improved quality of experience for its customers. To achieve this goal, operators are adopting an increasingly diverse array of technologies to deliver value-added mobile and cloud-based services uniquely tailored to end-users’ preferences. The advent of network functions virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) as part of this technology chain will add significant value. However, unless these services are coupled with a supporting system that can efficiently orchestrate their delivery and performance, services providers will be unable to reap the benefits.

With EXFO Xtract, operators can now rely on EXFO’s industry expertise to leverage data from a multitude of sources—including field instruments, test probes and network equipment—in turn enabling them to rapidly deploy new services, automate test and assurance routines, analyze performance baselines, and accurately pinpoint service-affecting events. EXFO Xtract can be utilized regardless of the technologies, network architecture or equipment vendor employed.

“The launch of EXFO Xtract puts EXFO in a unique and enviable position when it comes to the automation, acceleration and optimization of services and network lifecycle management,” said Claudio Mazzuca, Vice President of EXFO’s Transport and Service Assurance Division. “Integrating EXFO’s wide range of product and professional service offerings into a powerful open analytics platform gives us the ability to deliver unmatched, comprehensive solutions—marking a new era as we move into service automation and contextual analytics space.”
