EXFO gets order for fiber network monitoring solution

EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO; TSX: EXF) said it has obtained a multi-million dollar order from a government entity in the Asia-Pacific region for a fiber monitoring system that will monitor a mission-critical, high-speed, IP/MPLS (Internet Protocol/Multiprotocol Label Switching) network spanning over nearly 3,000 kilometers.

EXFO´s fiber monitoring solution, branded as NQMSfiber, provides real-time surveillance of an optical network 24 hours per day, seven days per week. It is indispensable for detecting fiber bends, fiber cuts and fiber degradations over time, all of which can impede communications across a network.

NQMSfiber consists of optical time domain reflectometers (OTDRs), in the form of remote test units, providing high resolution and accurate loss measurements along fiber links. These units are combined with a web-based element management system (EMS), offering users a centralized access to results and an intuitive interface to analyze alarms and other events. This order is expected to be recognized into revenue in fiscal 2016.

EXFO enables extraordinary experiences on global networks. Our test, service assurance and network visibility solutions allow equipment manufacturers and network operators to deliver a wealth of services to consumers, while increasing network capacity and reducing operating costs.
