EXFO Showcases Its End-to-End Wireless Network
Lifecycle Assessment Solution at CTIA Wireless
QUEBEC CITY, CANADA, April 27, 2012 — EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO) (TSX: EXF) announced today its participation at International CTIA Wireless, May 8 to 10, 2012, in New Orleans. Visitors at booth 3100 (Hall C) are invited to discover EXFO’s comprehensive mobile network testing solution, covering the full network lifecycle. This centralized, integrated solution makes it easy for mobile operators to seamlessly turn up, monitor and troubleshoot services, and ultimately optimize performance.
The introduction of LTE technology and the transition from circuit-switched to packet-based services are creating great opportunities for operators. However, they are also increasing pressure to minimize time to market for new services, reduce network OPEX, and provide subscribers with ubiquitous coverage, high availability and flawless quality of experience (QoE). At this year’s CTIA Wireless, EXFO’s testing and monitoring solutions will demonstrate how these challenges can be eliminated.
During the event, EXFO will showcase the BrixNGN end-to-end mobile backhaul testing and monitoring solution, its award-winning line of Ethernet and multiservice testing solutions, as well as the BrixHawk DA and SA advanced 4G/LTE testing and monitoring solutions for network performance optimization. Also featured will be the new QA-805/813 next-generation network simulation platforms (for LTE-to-IMS) and the new Portable iPro, an intelligent network analysis probe, ideal for capturing all data needed for analysis, anywhere in the network.
“The introduction of these new products demonstrates our leadership in bringing state-of-the-art solutions that meet operator’s needs for simpler, more intuitive, more accurate and cost-effective test and monitoring, making EXFO a partner of choice for both mobile network operators and mobile network equipment manufacturers”, said Claudio Mazzuca, Vice-President of EXFO’s Service Assurance Division. “As operators build up their networks to meet explosive mobile growth, they are encountering challenges everywhere from rolling out new circuits to converging their networks to support 4G technologies. EXFO’s comprehensive mobile solution provides a simple, integrated and cost-effective way to meet these challenges while keeping capital costs low and reducing operational expenses.”
