As mobile communications are moving towards a converged IP transport
network and leading to the deployment of Carrier Ethernet in the
backhaul, the introduction of LTE technology and the transition from
circuit-switched to packet-based services are generating key challenges
for industry stakeholders. In fact, there is continuous pressure to
minimize the 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 edition of GSMA Mobile World Congress, EXFO will
demonstrate how its comprehensive mobile network assessment solution
addresses critical challenges, from the physical layer all the way to
the application layer. Showcased EXFO products will include the
Backhaul Tri-Pak, an all-in-one Ethernet, fiber and connector
assessment solution that enables complete Ethernet service turn-up in
15 minutes, the BrixHawk Distributed Analyzer, designed for determining
subscriber QoE in order to reduce customer churn, as well as the
BrixNGN service assurance solution, which enables network performance
optimization, bringing unprecedented scalability for both operational
and capital cost reduction.
"EXFO has become a choice partner for both mobile network operators and

solution enables seamless network convergence", said Matti Palomäki,
Vice-President of EXFO's Wireless Division. "Our complete end-to-end
