EXFO announces that it will be exhibiting at the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Partner Showcase at Mobile World Congress 2017.

EXFO to demonstrate its integration and ability of deploying EXFO VNF with HPE NFV Director (MANO) using OpenStack.

QUEBEC CITY, CANADA, February 23, 2017 – EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO TSX: EXF), the global network test, data and analytics experts, today announced that it is a proud partner of the Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) Partner Showcase at Mobile World Congress, which will take place from February 27 until March 2, 2017 in Barcelona, Spain.

EXFO will be showcasing, at booth 3E11, its ability to automate the process of instantiating verifier (VNF) with HPE NFV Director (MANO) using OpenStack, giving operators the required confidence to effectively deploy their virtualized networks and leverage the enormous potential to improve their operational efficiency and subscriber quality of experience (QoE).

“With the added flexibility and agility that virtualization promises to deliver, operators require complete visibility over their networks and the ability to dynamically assure new services that are being deployed. This will go a long way into improving the reliability, competitiveness and QoE for subscribers,” explained Claudio Mazzuca, Vice-President at EXFO’s Service Assurance Division.

“Our ability to carry out a seamless integration with the HPE NFV Director (MANO) shows EXFO’s commitment to helping operators to remain agile and achieve faster-time-to-revenue—all while decreasing their OPEX and CAPEX,” Mr. Mazzuca concluded.

“HPE NFV Director helps tame the complexities introduced by NFV in telecommunications networks. It brings together HPE capabilities in OSS and IT management to provide a comprehensive, multivendor NFV orchestrator solution,” said David Sliter, Vice President and General Manager, Communications Solutions Business, HPE. “HPE and EXFO are committed to an interoperable approach to successfully operationalize NFV deployments.”
