R&D/Lab innovation

Develop innovative solutions faster and more cost-effectively with high-performance, agile and automated test solutions.

Your challenges

  • Support test needs of different groups and multiple technologies
  • Keep tools up to date but need to stretch budget
  • Stay on top of new technologies but must minimize training time
  • Tight time constraints and limited supply of test equipment
  • Missing test functionality and software licenses—multiple tools often required
  • Long set-up times

Description

Video, cloud computing and other bandwidth-intensive applications are forcing operators to rapidly increase core/metro network capacity. At the same time, network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) are driven to make their own customers more agile in the way they do business. At the forefront of innovation, NEMs continuously enhance their offerings without compromising quality. They need best-in-class test equipment to support them in their transformations.

EXFO brings test orchestration and 3D analytics to converged networks testing for 100G and beyond, addressing the needs of NEMs for design, verification and manufacturing.

As a Manager/Test Engineering, how do I innovate on tighter budgets?

Challenges

  • Shorten testing times while technologies are complex
  • Inventory control with equipment configured with the right features at the right time
  • Work with tighter budgets and do more with less

EXFO Solution

  • EXFO Multilink: multi-user, multimodule, multiplatform web-based application for remote management
  • FTB OnDemand: time-based licenses for required features and modules means labs can stretch their budgets, and costs can be processed as operating expenses—reducing CAPEX
  • LTB-8 Rackmount Platform: 400G-ready with no power limitations; its eight-slot configuration enables simultaneous testing of eight 100G modules
