EXFO, the communications industry's test, monitoring and analytics experts, announced that a US Tier 1 service provider has selected EXFO's real-time network topology software (EXFO Ontology) to facilitate groundbreaking network transformation.

EXFO's network topology software, which essentially maps network resources to related services in real-time, is used by service providers to obtain a unified view of their network. Ultimately, this information assures service delivery to end users.

In this particular case, the Tier 1 service provider will leverage EXFO's software solution to support game-changing operational automation and network integration. This challenge is compounded by the massive scale and complexity involved in combining legacy and next-generation technologies under a single, comprehensive network.

EXFO's unique solution will help the customer address these challenges by:

Locating and combining information from multiple data sources and transforming it into a validated and accurate searchable semantic modelMapping and tracking the customer's network resources from end-to-end and generating a cohesive dataset that can be used to leverage those resources to their full potential

The contract win is valued at US$4.9 million.

Philippe Morin, CEO, EXFO
To deliver superior customer experience, service providers must have a unified understanding of their network resources and be able to automate their consumption and change in real time across legacy and virtual networks. As this Tier 1 service provider continues its extensive digital transformation, EXFO's real-time network topology solution is bringing their systems and people together in a way that simply wasn't possible before.
