EXFO Launches a New Probe for Assurance of Transport Services and Customer QoE


The BV-110 Verifier assures transport service-level agreements while simultaneously measuring end-user QoE for data, voice, video and mobile services

QUEBEC CITY, Oct. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO) (TSX: EXF) announced today the launch of the BV-110, a next-generation hardware probe designed for validating transport service-level agreements at customer premises and cell sites while measuring end-user quality of experience (QoE) for data, voice, video and mobile services. Part of the overall Brix solution, the BV-110 enables service providers and mobile network operators to assure the quality of their services, reduce mean-time-to-repair (MTTR) and avoid unnecessary truck rolls, resulting in significant cost savings.

The latest building block in the EXFO family of verifiers, the BV-110 increases the service assurance power of EXFO's Brix System. Thanks to its multifunction, simultaneous measurements, patented HW timestamping technology and evolutionary design, the BV-110 enhances operational efficiency and network visibility with a cost-effective solution for customer premises and cell site applications.

The BV-110 monitors transport performance and allows fixed and mobile network operators to simultaneously measure the true end-user QoE over both wireline and wireless segments. EXFO's new solution therefore plays an instrumental role in maintaining a high level of customer satisfaction and reducing churn—which is essential to the operators' revenue stream.

"The new BV-110 Verifier is a true multiplay solution designed for simultaneous assurance of data, voice, video and mobile services. It delivers network to application layer performance, with extensive QoE monitoring," said Claudio Mazzuca, Vice-President of EXFO's Systems and Service Assurance Division. "This new monitoring tool provides the visibility and details that are essential for network administrators to quickly and easily troubleshoot performance issues that affect end users' QoE."
