EXFO Showcases Complete Mobile Network Testing and Monitoring Solutions for
Optimized Network Lifecycle Management and Reduced OPEX

At Mobile World Congress, EXFO will demonstrate its unique end-to-end network assessment solution, its service assurance support designed for LTE networks of the future as well as its revolutionary standards-based Ethernet service testing methodology.

QUEBEC CITY, Feb. 10 /CNW Telbec/ - EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO, TSX: EXF) will present its end-to-end network assessment solution that brings unprecedented capabilities to operators at Mobile World Congress, from February 15-18 (Booth 2A97). Leveraging a standards-based approach, EXFO's scalable and automated solution is designed to enhance and optimize the performance of 3G/4G networks and services.

This unique end-to-end network assessment solution seamlessly integrates into the operator's OSS system, delivering the performance and flexibility to remotely carry both automated testing and live service monitoring throughout the entire network. Network operators can therefore collect key performance indicators (KPIs) and continuously assess the service quality from the core all the way through the base transceiver station to proactively anticipate and address potential service disruptions-ultimately resulting in increased customer satisfaction and revenues as well as minimized churn.

With the emerging high-bandwidth services being deployed every day, testing and monitoring the quality of service (QoS) and customer quality of experience (QoE) becomes more important than ever. A centralized and scalable service assurance solution is essential to allow operators to enhance and optimize the performance of LTE networks and services while minimizing human intervention and reducing costs. As with VoIP, IMS and 3G technology, LTE network operators can continue to rely on EXFO's Brix System to reduce capex and opex as they extend their network infrastructure.

At the forefront of revolutionizing carrier Ethernet and mobile backhaul services field deployments, EXFO is the first to implement EtherSAM into its end-to-end assessment capabilities. EtherSAM, the new Ethernet service testing methodology based on the ITU-T Y.156sam, is fully adapted to today's mobile backhaul, commercial and wholesale services. This methodology simulates all types of services that will run on the network and simultaneously qualify all key service-level-agreement parameters in a single test-enabling service turning-up and troubleshooting eight times faster, with 100% accuracy.

"EXFO's value proposition to mobile operators isn't only about innovation, quality and ease of use; it's also about deploying higher-margin services in the most cost-effective and profitable way possible," said Germain Lamonde, EXFO's Chairman, President and CEO. "Our comprehensive portfolio provides our customers with the solutions they need to enhance their efficiency while minimizing their operational costs, and already EXFO's solutions are utilized by some of the largest operators around the globe."
