Combined with the EXpert IP and EXpert VoIP applications, as well as EXFO’s FTB-1 Ethernet and OTDR test modules, EXpert IPTV brings to the industry the most comprehensive and powerful triple-play solution in a portable device designed for growing FTTH deployments worldwide.

EXpert IPTV Test Tools: powerful IPTV analysis for access networks The new EXpert IPTV application now enables FTB-1 platform users to quickly and easily perform pass/fail verification of IPTV installations. It also reduces the amount of service calls by detecting and clearly identifying through simple pass/fail indications any degrading conditions during service turn-up, ensuring subscribers’ quality of experience. EXpert IPTV can emulate a set-top box, and displays a real-time video preview, allowing the technician to determine video and audio quality before any other equipment is installed.

“With the addition of the EXpert IPTV Test Tools to the FTB Ecosystem, not only does EXFO provide its customers with software-scalable solutions, but also complete FTTH testing capabilities with a single handheld test unit”, said Étienne Gagnon, Vice-President of EXFO’s Wireline Division and Corporate Marketing. “This latest innovation further demonstrates our day-to-day focus on helping our customers reduce their OPEX, and increase their overall field-testing efficiency.”
