EXFO TFv will help network operators to dramatically enhance their
operational processes and optimize their test asset investments
QUEBEC CITY, June 17, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO, TSX: EXF) announced today the introduction of EXFO TFv - Test Function Virtualization, the industry's first suite of defined offerings that focuses on test
function virtualization. Building on EXFO's market leading EXFO Connect solution, the industry's first cloud-based test results and asset
management solution, EXFO TFv offers all the benefits of virtualization
through the seamless enablement of test functions on any EXFO test
asset, at any time.
A key component of EXFO's TFv offering is the new FTB OnDemand, an application for instantiating and distributing time-based licenses,
giving service providers unparalleled flexibility to perform a specific
test function, on a specific EXFO test asset, when needed. This
application ensures that all assets are fully leveraged at any point in
the service deployment and maintenance lifecycle. FTB OnDemand allows
carriers to test specific rates or standards without having to purchase
the software license, allowing for a barrier-free entry point while
reducing costs, increasing business efficiency, and delivering greater
flexibility. In combination with the FTB-88100NGE module, FTB OnDemand allows customers to configure the module for 10G
testing and enable 100G testing capability as the need arises.
Another key offering within EXFO TFv is FTB Anywhere, which enables operators to share testing software licenses across
multiple platforms within their test fleet. This ensures that the
instantiation of tests can be done in real-time to ensure that any
field task can be completed without the need of costly repeats.
EXFO TFv is available on a number of best-in-class EXFO test modules,
including the FTB-88100NGE and FTB-8830NGE Power Blazer modules as well as the NetBlazer series of modules.
"EXFO prides itself on the understanding of our customers' main
challenges—and the ability to offer innovative solutions that enable
them to overcome these challenges," said Claudio Mazzuca,
Vice-President, Transport and Service Assurance Division. "With FTB
Anywhere and now FTB OnDemand part of the EXFO TFv suite, we can now
offer network operators unprecedented flexibility in how they manage
their testing capabilities and really optimize the ROI on their test
