EXFO Launches Real-Time Network Performance Monitoring Solution

 

  • EXFO Xtract delivers customized information for complete network performance visibility

QUEBEC CITY, CANADA, August 28, 2014 — EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFOTSX: EXF) today unveiled EXFO Xtract, a comprehensive monitoring platform using a combination of patented software engines to collect, analyze, correlate and report on real-time, historical, and predicted events in the network. This solution offers complete visibility of network infrastructure performance through a distributed polling system with the ability to monitor millions of elements in real time.

XtractWith the marked rise of virtualization and cloud-based service offerings, the need for reliable, high-performance networks has never been greater. The reality is that legacy monitoring solutions are no longer capable of coping economically with the new infrastructure scale and complexity that come with this evolution.

Based on this new reality, EXFO Xtract was developed to give network operators an in-depth view of their infrastructure, as well as the level of information required to improve the overall control and performance of their network. This is accomplished through proactive monitoring and management of their assets, regardless of infrastructure size, geographical deployment distribution, or network topology architecture.

Designed to run on and take full advantage of commodity hardware by allowing it to be deployed in a traditional or virtualized environment, EXFO Xtract has the smallest hardware footprint in the industry. It is also the most cost-effective solution on the market, generating significant hardware CAPEX savings up to 60% greater than those of its closest competitor.

Many service providers are overwhelmed by the number of events and alarms that their network operation centers (NOCs) receive on a daily basis. In many cases, critical events go unnoticed. EXFO Xtract has an integrated fault solution to help organizations gain operational efficiency through its out of the box, known network events and their corresponding sets of intelligent rules for alarm filtering, deduplication and reduction. In addition to the existing rules, EXFO Xtract provides a simple mechanism capable of enriching its knowledge rules based on the operator’s current or ongoing experiences.

Equipped with a large number of preloaded management information bases (MIBs) containing key performance indicators (KPIs), EXFO Xtract provides rapid time to value by bypassing lengthy installation and configuration processes. In many cases, the solution can be deployed and operational within a single day for immediate value to operators.

“EXFO Xtract is leveraged in proactive scenarios to identify trends and impending problems related to the service infrastructure, thus enabling operators to take action before service outages occur for better operational efficiency,” said Claudio Mazzuca, Vice-President of EXFO’s Transport and Service Assurance Division. “EXFO’s carrier-grade solution uses the combination of its patented adaptive polling and scalable-down-to-a-second data extraction to pinpoint network problems in real time.”
