Quebec City based-EXFO Inc. has received an order worth approximately US$2-million from a global tier-1 mobile network operator for the complete assessment of its mobile backhaul network infrastructure, from turn-up to real-time monitoring and advanced troubleshooting.
EXFO’s Ethernet One solution, including BrixNGN service assurance software, BV-3100 Verifiers, and FTB-1 field-portable platforms, was awarded the order based on its ability to meet enhanced service performance delivery, increased operational efficiency, and accelerated time-to-revenue requirements of the global mobile network operator.
The bulk of the order will be recognized in fiscal 2015.
“I am really pleased with this significant deal as it demonstrates that EXFO’s centralized and automated end-to-end Ethernet One solution for assessing the complete mobile backhaul network lifecycle is a winning combination,” says Claudio Mazzuca, vice-president of EXFO’s transport and service assurance division. “This contract win with a global tier-1 mobile network operator also bodes well for the future, since the rapid expansion of the mobile industry is clearly creating real-life challenges for our customers and wonderful opportunities for an innovation leader like EXFO.”
