EXFO Xtract

Unleash Your Network's True Potential

The competitive landscape within the telecom industry is putting tremendous pressure on service providers to introduce new services faster, while ensuring improved quality of experience for its customers. To achieve this goal, operators are adopting an increasingly diverse array of technologies to deliver value-added mobile and cloud-based services uniquely tailored to end-users’ preferences. The advent of network functions virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) as part of this technology chain will add significant value. However, unless these services are coupled with a supporting system that can efficiently orchestrate their delivery and performance, services providers will be unable to reap the benefits.

Being Ahead of the Game


EXFO has integrated its expertise in the automation of service turn-up, active testing, passive monitoring and infrastructure polling into a comprehensive E2E solution that enables operators to greatly improve time-to-market while guaranteeing exceptional quality for new services.

Operators can rely on EXFO’s industry expertise to leverage data from a multitude of sources—including field instruments, test probes and network equipment—in turn enabling them to rapidly deploy new services, automate test and assurance routines, analyze performance baselines, and accurately pinpoint service-affecting events. EXFO Xtract can be utilized regardless of the technologies, network architecture or equipment vendors employed.

Unique and Innovative Features

Service Flow Automation

A simple web-based user interface enabling customers to define a sequence of activities based on templates in order to accomplish a given task. The solution removes dependency on long development cycles and can be customized by non-developers.

E2E Service Modeling

This unique feature enables service providers to define the relationship between customers, services and supporting resources (physical or logical). Service modeling becomes the foundation of multiple applications, such as service quality management (SQM), which is necessary for operating, monitoring, maintaining and optimizing a service.

Flexible Dashboard and Reporting Module

Ensures an optimized experience based on user profiles, job function or use cases. The dashboard is web-based with drag and drop capabilities and a context-sensitive drilldown. Different types of reports are also available, from geographical maps to trending, worst and top N, alarm reports and much more.

BrixWorx Family Synergy

EXFO Xtract seamlessly integrates all BrixWorx service-level agreement (SLA) and service test results, enabling you to combine your proactive service testing with its underlying network infrastructure. In addition to offering a single perspective into both service and network performance, the solution gives operators the insight they need to accurately pinpoint service-affecting events in their network. With the new EXFO Xtract dashboard and reporting capabilities, BrixWorx customers can configure various views based on their users profiles. The automatic integration between the two solutions also provides greater visibility into the detailed BrixWorx test results, with seamless navigation between historical and real-time data. Based on user-defined hierarchies, various reports (e.g., trending, geographical maps and status reports) can be leveraged to drill down from high-level views all the way down to detailed KPIs. This allows users to zero in on problem areas with just a few clicks.

As Internet protocol (IP) becomes the transport layer of choice, operators are faced with significant challenges to provide accurate and relevant measurement of IP network performance. Tools are available such as ICMP Ping/TraceRoute and UDP Echo, but these provide limited value in the context of performance as they typically lack precision, accuracy or relevancy for assuring carrier-grade performance. Other tools exist that leverage the TCP/IP suite but lack the broad acceptance of the network equipment manufacturer community that is required for seamless operation in cross-network/ multi-vendor environments.
