QUEBEC CITY -- EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO; TSX: EXF) today unveiled EXFO Xtract, a comprehensive monitoring platform using a combination of patented software engines to collect, analyze, correlate and report on real-time, historical, and predicted events in the network. This solution offers complete visibility of network infrastructure performance through a distributed polling system with the ability to monitor millions of elements in real time.

With the marked rise of virtualization and cloud-based service offerings, the need for reliable, high-performance networks has never been greater. The reality is that legacy monitoring solutions are no longer capable of coping economically with the new infrastructure scale and complexity that come with this evolution.

Based on this new reality, EXFO Xtract was developed to give network operators an in-depth view of their infrastructure, as well as the level of information required to improve the overall control and performance of their network. This is accomplished through proactive monitoring and management of their assets, regardless of infrastructure size, geographical deployment distribution, or network topology architecture.

Designed to run on and take full advantage of commodity hardware by allowing it to be deployed in a traditional or virtualized environment, EXFO Xtract has the smallest hardware footprint in the industry.

EXFO Xtract has an integrated fault solution to help organizations gain operational efficiency through its out of the box, known network events and their corresponding sets of intelligent rules for alarm filtering, de-duplication and reduction. In addition to the existing rules, EXFO Xtract provides a simple mechanism capable of enriching its knowledge rules based on the operator's current or ongoing experiences.

Equipped with a large number of preloaded management information bases (MIBs) containing key performance indicators (KPIs), EXFO Xtract provides rapid time to value by bypassing lengthy installation and configuration processes. In many cases, the solution can be deployed and operational within a single day for immediate value to operators.

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.
