Telco cloud assurance on AWS

Service assurance on Amazon Web Services

EXFO’s cloud-native QoE/QoS test agents and advanced telecom analytics enable 5G, private networks and MEC services powered by AWS to achieve full performance visibility in dynamic, virtualized environments. Together, EXFO and AWS deliver the unique insights needed to correlate network performance with QoE and accelerate troubleshooting of cloud-native networks.


Correlating performance with QoE

The move to cloud-native network functions (CNFs) on AWS and away from purpose-built equipment introduces a new fault domain. Variability in compute performance can lead to changes in customer QoE that are hard to troubleshoot and resolve. Instrumenting and testing network functions is the first step in correlating network performance with the lived customer experience.

Change drivers

The transition to cloud-native 5G infrastructure has introduced a new fault domain. The resulting visibility gap hinders the efficient deployment, operation and troubleshooting of 5G networks and services. Compute and cloud observability must be integrated and correlated with network and service monitoring to rapidly isolate, diagnose and resolve customer-impacting performance degradations in cloud-native networks.

Together with AWS, EXFO is restoring visibility onto 5G network performance and QoE.

  • A new fault domain

    Cloud compute performance can be highly variable.

  • The QoE visibility gap

    Ephemeral compute resources break the traditional link between network performance and QoE.

  • Performance drives revenues

    New 5G revenue streams depend on achieving strict performance criteria.


Together EXFO and AWS enable service providers to achieve full-stack visibility in ephemeral network and edge compute infrastructure, delivering real-time actionable insights into service QoE and enabling optimal resource management across the family of AWS infrastructure solutions.

Improve infrastructure performance

Combine EXFO’s extensive QoE/QoS KPI test suite with its AI-enabled analytics and AWS capabilities such as EKS orchestration and CloudWatch monitoring to improve cloud-native network performance. Leveraging several core AWS services, the EXFO ASA platform cuts across domains to deliver visibility from core to edge as well as performance segmentation across network elements.
