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 -- EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering Inc. (NASDAQ:EXFO)(NASDAQ:TSX:)(NASDAQ: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."
