EXFO sets the stage for successful next-gen network transformations at OFC 2019

Published on February 28, 2019

Demonstrating high-speed optical transformations done right

QUEBEC CITY, CANADA, February 28, 2019EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFOTSX: EXF), the communications industry’s test, monitoring and analytics experts, will be exhibiting its portfolio of intelligent, automated test and measurement solutions for the next wave of high-speed optical networks at the Optical Fiber Communications Conference (OFC) from March 5 to 7, 2019. “Our principal objective at OFC this year is to share and demonstrate EXFO’s vision and mission,” said Stéphane Chabot, EXFO’s Vice President, Test and Measurement. “For EXFO, doing transformations right means rolling out next-gen services and technology using the best test methods and solutions from the start, while ensuring that new and existing systems can keep performing hand in hand. This is what we excel at.”

Latest innovations

In addition to presenting its two award-winning solutions for 400G and MPO links, EXFO will unveil its latest innovations designed to bring simplicity and efficiency to the entire network lifecycle:

  • OSFP transceiver support on EXFO’s 400G test solution, providing the flexibility and scalability to test all recent optical interfaces including CFP8, QSFP-DD, and now OSFP, using the same solution
  • Expanded functionalities for EXFO’s 100G multiservice test solution in a new compact form factor allowing two modules, thus enabling unmatched combinations of simultaneous 10G/25G/50G/100G Ethernet tests

Strong partnerships in interoperability demonstrations

EXFO, with industry-leading partners and organizations, is participating in multiple interoperability demos on future technologies (400G, FlexE, 5G transport and fiber). These demos will show how Webscales, network equipment manufacturers and service providers can successfully roll out next-gen tech and services while maintaining an outstanding customer experience. EXFO will also demonstrate how to address the increasing level of complexity in today’s networks, where legacy and new technologies must coexist over the same infrastructure.

  • Ethernet Alliance (booth #4749)
  • Infinera (booth #2000)
  • Intel (booth #2200)
  • Optical Fiber Test & Measurement Center (booth #4549)
  • Xilinx (booth #1811)

Each demo will be facilitated by EXFO’s Open Transceiver System (OTS)—a modular system designed to handle current and future high-speed transceivers. This is extending the life of EXFO test equipment and reducing total cost of ownership and CAPEX for our customers with future-proof test solutions.
