Get connected and share resources

EXFO TFv—Test Function Virtualization is the industry’s first suite that focuses on test function virtualization. This suite is ideal for lab managers who are looking to scale their testing requirements to specific user needs.

  • FTB Anywhere floating test licenses enable EXFO’s platform users to share licenses, giving them the functionality that they need anytime, anywhere. Customers own the software licenses and can share them between platforms.
  • FTB OnDemand time-based licenses activate a wide range of test functionalities for a specific period of time—perfect when a test function is only needed for a specific project.
