EXFO Inc. announced today the introduction of EXFO TFv - Test Function Virtualization, the industry's first suite of defined offerings that focuses on test function virtualization. Building on EXFO's market leading EXFO Connect solution, the industry's first cloud-based test results and asset management solution, EXFO TFv offers all the benefits of virtualization through the seamless enablement of test functions on any EXFO test asset, at any time.

A key component of EXFO's TFv offering is the new FTB OnDemand, an application for instantiating and distributing time-based licenses, giving service providers unparalleled flexibility to perform a specific test function, on a specific EXFO test asset, when needed. This application ensures that all assets are fully leveraged at any point in the service deployment and maintenance lifecycle. FTB OnDemand allows carriers to test specific rates or standards without having to purchase the software license, allowing for a barrier-free entry point while reducing costs, increasing business efficiency, and delivering greater flexibility. In combination with the FTB-88100NGE module, FTB OnDemand allows customers to configure the module for 10G testing and enable 100G testing capability as the need arises.

Another key offering within EXFO TFv is FTB Anywhere, which enables operators to share testing software licenses across multiple platforms within their test fleet. This ensures that the instantiation of tests can be done in real-time to ensure that any field task can be completed without the need of costly repeats.

EXFO TFv is available on a number of best-in-class EXFO test modules, including the FTB-88100NGE and FTB-8830NGE Power Blazer modules as well as the NetBlazer series of modules.

"EXFO prides itself on the understanding of our customers' main challenges-and the ability to offer innovative solutions that enable them to overcome these challenges," said Claudio Mazzuca, Vice-President, Transport and Service Assurance Division. "With FTB Anywhere and now FTB OnDemand part of the EXFO TFv suite, we can now offer network operators unprecedented flexibility in how they manage their testing capabilities and really optimize the ROI on their test equipment."
