EXFO’s Nova Active Agent BV-10 (previously known as BV-10) is a low-cost, easy-to-configure, dedicated, smart performance endpoint device that is fully interoperable with any standards-based Ethernet test unit. Nova Active Agent BV-10 can be easily deployed across the entire network without having to interrupt services, offering Ethernet service providers an economical alternative to remote testing, monitoring and troubleshooting.
Service providers are continuously challenged to improve network performance and reliability while controlling operational costs. One of the key challenges in testing and monitoring network performance is having full visibility across the entire network. Thanks to a very low deployment cost, the simple and intuitive Nova Active Agent BV-10 can be quickly installed at any number of sites to reduce human intervention and enhance network performance visibility. In fact, Nova Active Agent BV-10 provides visibility without having to send field technicians to remote sites and/or use more expensive Ethernet network interface devices to perform simple loopback functionalities.
Fully integrated into EXFO’s mobile backhaul and carrier Ethernet end-to-end testing solutions, Nova Active Agent BV-10 can be used as a performance endpoint device for a number of applications and throughout the network lifecycle phases, from turn-up to performance monitoring and troubleshooting.
