QUEBEC CITY -- EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO) (TSX: EXF) announced today the launch of the FTB-610 Wideband Copper Test Module and FTB-635 Wideband Copper and DSL Test Module. Housed in the FTB-1 platform, these new additions to EXFO’s FTB Ecosystem of modular, field-testing solutions bring its market-leading business benefits and savings to DSL, FTTN and hybrid network circuits and services. The FTB-610 and FTB-635 test modules combine with the platform’s built-in optical power meter, VFL and fiber inspection probe to create a true all-in-one, all-at-once FTTN/hybrid network troubleshooting platform. Their feature sets are aligned with FTTN and VDSL2 requirements, and packed with not only traditional copper tests, but also advanced wideband, noise and fault location tests (e.g., TDR and RFL). The addition of copper and DSL test functionalities to the FTB-1, which also supports high-speed Ethernet, OTDR and iOLM testing, makes it the industry’s most comprehensive test tool for deeper network troubleshooting. The FTB-610 module offers deep copper analysis, including the innovative SmartR™ test suite, which automatically runs all the decisive copper tests and translates the results into plain language and graphical results to speed up interpretation and troubleshooting of twisted-pair faults. The FTB-635 adds the latest ADSL2+/VDSL2 test capabilities, including full vectoring and bonding support. Using the platform’s EXpert IP and EXpert IPTV on-board test suites, the FTB-635 can troubleshoot IPTV and video from either the DSL or Ethernet interfaces, including live video preview, anywhere on the circuit.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
