QUEBEC CITY, July 17, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO) (TSX:
EXF) announced today a major market milestone as it has sold over
25,000 units of its FTB-200 Compact Platform to over a thousand
customers from all around the world, a testament to the ever-present
need for high-end testing modules in small, portable formats.
Leveraging years of experience in field testing, EXFO introduced the
FTB-200 Compact Platform several years ago as a means to help customers
who needed to combine high-end technology into something more versatile
that could easily be carried into metro and mesh networks by
supertechnicians. EXFO was the first to bring a multilayer, multimedium
approach to a truly portable format.
"Today, the FTB-200 Compact Platform continues to deliver the best
performance on the market for optical, Ethernet, SONET/SDH and
multiservice testing," said Stéphane Chabot, Director of EXFO's Optical
Business Unit. "Thanks to its multiple functionalities, we allow our
customers to increase their asset utilization and ROI, while reducing
their overall costs."
The FTB-200 Compact Platform is part of EXFO's FTB Ecosystem, an
innovative testing environment that combines a comprehensive range of
connected testing platforms and productivity-boosting cloud-based
software applications to help network operators accelerate network
deployments and reduce operating expenses.
