EXFO Releases Powerful Yet Affordable VoIP and IMS Test Solution

    New test platform and gigabit Ethernet test module compatible with
    renowned EXFO sipFlex and hssFlex software test suites

    QUEBEC CITY, April 24 /CNW Telbec/ - EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering
Inc. (NASDAQ:   EXFO, TSX: EXF) announced today the release of the
QualityAssurer QA-604 Next-Generation Network Test Platform and the
high-performance Signaling Centric Module Gigabit Ethernet (SCM-GbE)
Interface. When used together, these two products are providing a unique
entry-level point test solution for voice-over-Internet protocol (VoIP) and
Internet protocol multimedia subsystem (IMS) applications.
    Without compromising on performance and capability, this small-footprint
2U platform solution offers pay-as-you-grow scalability and can be expanded to
support more than two million subscribers. The new QualityAssurer QA-604
complements EXFO's high-end InterWatch R14 platform - which has established
itself as a tool of choice to test IMS and VoIP - and supports the same test
functions and features as the InterWatch R14, but in a smaller form factor.
    The QualityAssurer QA-604 platform and the SCM-GbE module can be combined
with EXFO's intuitive hssFlex and sipFlex software test suites, which were
designed with built-in test functionality, providing a comprehensive IMS test
bed. This complete solution, delivering unrivalled ease of use, enables
network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) and network service providers (NSPs) to
perform comprehensive device and end-to-end VoIP and IMS testing using a
single platform.
    "With this entry-level, yet powerful VoIP and IMS test solution,
customers can now leverage the strength of a premium test platform, without
having to bear the full cost of a high-end unit," said Etienne Gagnon, EXFO's
Vice-President of Product Management and Marketing. "This new QualityAssurer
QA-604 platform allows a wide variety of customers - from the NSP lab with
small scale requirements to the high-capacity carrier-class NEM R&D lab
segment - to perform VoIP and IMS stress and emulation testing at a great
price/feature ratio."
