QUEBEC CITY -- EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO) (TSX: EXF), the network test, monitoring and analytics experts, today launched Universal Virtual Sync, a software-based solution enabling communications service providers (CSPs) to accurately and cost-effectively measure network latency (delay). This real-time visibility into latency behavior enables operators to deliver outstanding services, anytime and instantly for applications like video, VoIP and interactive services, and is critical for assuring C-RAN, 5G and NFV's sub-millisecond latency requirements.

Delay is frustrating for subscribers using interactive, real-time applications like streaming and gaming, and they will change providers if they aren't getting the quality of experience they expect. Delay is also difficult to manage and varies greatly depending on whether the IP traffic is going in an upstream or downstream direction. As a result, CSPs must be able to reliably measure unidirectional latency in order to identify the direction of degradations and the location of excessive or uncontrolled delay.

"This ability to measure one-way delay in a simple, cost-effective manner, without needing either expensive external clocking or GPS, seems critical to measuring network latency more accurately," said Alan Breznick, Cable/Video Practice Leader for Light Reading. "Such an approach potentially offers a far superior way of ensuring the best possible subscriber experience."

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.
