QUEBEC CITY, CANADA -- EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO, TSX: EXF), the global network test, data and analytics experts, today announced the launch of the FTB-4 Pro platform, the industry’s smallest platform for testing high speed and optical networks. The deployment of 100G in key markets calls for comprehensive test solutions which are specifically designed to thoroughly test 100G links effectively and efficiently.

The FTB-4 Pro is the latest addition to EXFO’s test orchestration portfolio which transforms business as usual into smarter, scalable network testing that significantly increases operational efficiency and provides vital insights into field operations, network performance and service delivery.

The 4 slot modular FTB-4 Pro platform enables a unique combination for 100G commissioning, turn-up and troubleshooting which includes the FTBx-88200NGE 100G Multiservice tester (with iOptics transceiver validation software) and the FTB-5240S-P optical spectrum analyzer. There is no need to carry additional platforms or swap modules for unmatched transport and spectral testing on a single platform that no one in the industry can offer.

The versatile FTB-4 Pro platform supports a wide range of modules for field testing, data center interconnect, submarine testing, and lab applications for maximum flexibility and ROI across all phases of the service delivery chain: development, deployment, maintenance and troubleshooting. Module combinations on the FTB-4 Pro can also include iOLM/OTDRs, market leading OLTS for fiber characterization, dispersion solutions and other transport modules all with compatibility with EXFO’s market leading fiber inspection probes.

“Today’s high speed networks require testing solutions that are powerful enough to handle the massive rollout of high speed links,” said Stephane Chabot, EXFO’s Vice-President, Test and Measurement. “The FTB-4 Pro delivers the processing power of a high-end platform in the industry’s smallest form factor for 100G commissioning, turn-up and troubleshooting. Its ability to support a wide range of modules makes it our most versatile platform. With the FTB-4 Pro, technicians are equipped to get the job done faster, easier and more efficiently.”

The platform boasts a 10-inch high-resolution widescreen display and operates on the latest Microsoft Windows 10 OS with a QUAD core processor.

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.
