QUEBEC CITY -- EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO) (TSX: EXF) announced today the introduction of the FTB-88100NGE Power Blazer Multiservice Test Module to address 40G/100G field deployments happening now. The unique FTB-88100NGE Power Blazer is the industry’s smallest field-testing solution supporting 10M-to-100G rates in a single module. It covers a wide range of technologies including SONET/SDH, OTN and Ethernet. Further, the FTB-88100NGE Power Blazer addresses all 40G/100G field upgrades and lower-rate client service turn-ups. Today, carriers are facing multiple challenges. They need to support both legacy and packet-based services up to 100G on the same network and ensure service-level agreements for each of these services. Carriers are pressured to reduce the cost per transported bit, and minimize equipment costs, truck rolls and technician dispatches. What’s more, 40G/100G technology is complex: new pluggable optics (CFPs) are still in their nascent stage, in short supply and are expensive. In addition to all these challenges, carriers are still looking to reduce time-to-service without compromising quality. The FTB-88100NGE Power Blazer is uniquely optimized for field testing with its proven, easy-to-use GUI. It delivers first-class flexibility: remote management, battery operation and integrated optical tools. Carriers can combine the FTB-88100NGE with EXFO’s optical modules, such as an optical spectrum analyzer, making it the perfect kit for field commissioning and turn-up. Furthermore, the FTB-88100NGE is compatible with EXFO Connect, so users can benefit from EXFO’s cloud-based services, including centralized management of test units and data. EXFO Inc.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
