QUEBEC CITY, June 27, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO) (TSX:
EXF) released today the latest software version for its award-winning NetBlazer Series. The unprecedented power and functionality of this comprehensive
multiservice testing solution enables the accurate activation and
validation of next-generation Carrier Ethernet services with very
little time and effort.
Since technology is constantly evolving and transforming the way
services are delivered, customers expect greater performance, flawless
reliability and more flexibility from their providers. In essence,
operators and providers must now support and offer multiple classes of
service and manageability over interconnected networks. The Metro
Ethernet Forum (MEF) CE2.0 helps them achieves this.
Over the years, EXFO has developed innovative solutions that are at the
forefront of technology and adapted to existing and future Ethernet
service requirements. With its latest software release, EXFO's
NetBlazer Series integrates, into a one-module solution, all the
testing functionalities required to activate and validate CE2.0
compliant services used to deliver Ethernet cloud-based services,
business services, as well as mobile-backhaul services. This is
accomplished with test applications such as EtherSAMTM for multiple classes of service, validation of SyncE/1588 PTP testing
to ensure proper synchronization throughout the network, OAM
functionalities ensuring automated service management, and ExacTCP to validate the end-user application performance.
As part of the FTB Ecosystem, the NetBlazer Series delivers unmatched testing functionality and
operational efficiency that no other testing solution on the market can
offer. By leveraging the powerful correlation engine from EXFO's
cloud-based solution, EXFO Connect, and the unprecedented flexibility of EXFO TFv—Test Function Virtualization, the NetBlazer Series is truly an optimized and comprehensive testing
"For many years now, EXFO has been an active member and a key
contributor to standards development organizations such as the MEF. We
have also been developing testing methodologies such as EtherSAM (ITU-T
Y.1564) and ExacTCP (RFC 6349) to ensure that we bring to market what
operators, service providers and contractors need to address their
operational challenges," says Claudio Mazzuca, Vice-President of EXFO's
Transport and Service Assurance Division. "The enhanced NetBlazer
Series meets this challenge and streamlines test operations of CE2.0
compliant services, from build-out to maintenance."
