QUEBEC CITY -- EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO, TSX: EXF) announced today it has acquired the business of Aito Technologies, a leading provider of customer experience analytics for mobile network operators (MNOs), through an asset purchase deal.

Based in Espoo, Finland, Aito Technologies offers out-of-the-box customer experience analytics software that unifies business, network, product and customer data for real-time analysis, discovery, reaction and decision support for a wide range of users and decision-makers within a wireless operator organization.

Tracking and improving customer experience has become a primary focus throughout the mobile industry as the proliferation of smartphones and tablets, coupled with an explosion in streaming video, new services and applications, are fueling an exponential increase in data traffic and network complexity. Against this backdrop, MNOs must consistently provide superior quality of experience (QoE) at a lower cost in order to retain their most profitable customers. Consequently, end-to-end visibility and analytics are becoming mission-critical to assure high-performance service delivery.

EXFO will combine the powerful analytics software capabilities of Aito Technologies with its wide range of wireless products, systems and solutions to provide MNOs with heightened, end-to-end visibility of their 3G and 4G/LTE network infrastructures. Aito Technologies' analytics software allows network engineers to drill down to data gathered from multiple sources, including end-user and data-plane information from passive probes like EXFO's dual 10G line-rate capture PowerHawk Pro. In addition, analyzed data is cross-correlated with information from CRM databases, network elements and operations support systems in order to provide MNOs deep visibility into the end-to-end experience of subscribers.

Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

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.
