How do I manage complexity
while remaining agile?

Mike, Lab Manager

CHALLENGES
  • Support test needs of different groups and multiple technologies—including 10G to 100G. Port density can be an issue
  • Keep tools up to date but needs to stretch budget
  • Stay on top of new technologies but must minimize training time
The EXFO Solution:
  • LTB-8: best port density in the industry
  • FTBx-88200NGE Power Blazer: first solution with integrated CFP4 and QSFP+/QSFP28 interfaces
  • As part of EXFO TFv, FTB Anywhere floating licenses and FTB OnDemand time-based licenses enable labs to stretch their budgets
  • Common GUI across EXFO modules reduces training time
 

How do I move at the
speed of the market?

Emily, Lab Test Engineer

CHALLENGES
  • Tight time constraints and limited supply of test equipment
  • Missing test functionality and software licenses—multiple tools often required
  • Long set-up times
The EXFO Solution:
  • Flexible software licenses: FTB OnDemand time-based licenses
  • EXFO's advanced test features such as multichannel OTN, multistage ODU multiplexing and advanced troubleshooting capabilities
  • EXFO Multilink: multi-user, multimodule, multiplatform web-based application for remote management and easy software retrieval and download
 

How do I troubleshoot
customer issues easily?

Alex, Customer Support Engineer

CHALLENGES
  • Effectively troubleshoot customer problems
  • Resolve complicated and escalating product issues quickly, often off-site or at customer site
  • Advanced capabilities and rates required—often not available on some modules
The EXFO Solution:
  • Only solution where same modules can move from a rackmount to a portable platform
  • LTB-8 platform supports hot swapping of modules so there is no downtime or interruptions in testing
  • FTBx-88200NGE is industry’s first solution offering integrated CFP4 and QSFP+/QSFP28 interfaces and supporting advanced lab features
 

How do I innovate on tighter budgets?

David, Manager–Test Engineering

CHALLENGES
  • Shorten testing times while technologies are complex
  • Inventory control with equipment configured with the right features at the right time
  • Work with tighter budgets and do more with less
The EXFO Solution:
  • EXFO Multilink: multi-user, multimodule, multiplatform web-based application for remote management
  • FTB OnDemand: time-based licenses for required features and modules means labs can stretch their budgets, and costs can be processed as operating expenses—reducing CAPEX
  • LTB-8 Rackmount Platform: 400G-ready with no power limitations; its eight-slot configuration enables simultaneous testing of eight 100G modules
 

How do I automate efficiently?

Manufacturing Engineer

CHALLENGES
  • Tedious manual testing resulting in lack of efficiency and inaccurate results
  • Limited resources and time available to develop automation applications
  • Large number of instruments to manage and update
The EXFO Solution:
  • Advanced testing applications for design, verification and manufacturing cycles
  • Support for open architecture with complete automation drivers and libraries
  • Enables multiplatform and remote instruments management with EXFO Multilink
