EXFO Solution Selected by US Tier 1 Service Provider for Groundbreaking Network Transformation

US$4.9M deal for real-time network topology software

Quebec City, Jan. 8, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO), (TSX: EXF), the communications industry's test, monitoring and analytics experts, announced today that a US Tier 1 service provider has selected EXFO's real-time network topology software (EXFO Ontology) to facilitate groundbreaking network transformation.

EXFO's network topology software, which essentially maps network resources to related services in real-time, is used by service providers to obtain a unified view of their network. Ultimately, this information assures service delivery to end users.

In this particular case, the Tier 1 service provider will leverage EXFO's software solution to support game-changing operational automation and network integration. This challenge is compounded by the massive scale and complexity involved in combining legacy and next-generation technologies under a single, comprehensive network.

EXFO's unique solution will help the customer address these challenges by:

  • Locating and combining information from multiple data sources and transforming it into a validated and accurate searchable semantic model
  • Mapping and tracking the customer's network resources from end-to-end and generating a cohesive dataset that can be used to leverage those resources to their full potential

The contract win is valued at US$4.9 million.

"EXFO's innovative software solution provides this industry leader with unmatched visibility into their network, driving operational excellence and service agility," said Philippe Morin, EXFO's Chief Executive Officer. "To deliver superior customer experience, service providers must have a unified understanding of their network resources and be able to automate their consumption and change in real time across legacy and virtual networks.
