QUEBEC CITY, Feb. 3, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EXFO Inc. (Nasdaq:EXFO) (TSX:EXF) announced today its participation at GSMA Mobile World Congress 2011, February 14-17, 2011, in Barcelona, Spain, where it will demonstrate its innovative and comprehensive testing and monitoring solutions designed to help wireless operators seamlessly transform their network infrastructure.

As mobile networks continue to embrace new services, applications and technologies, wireless operators need powerful, world-class solutions to address their multivendor network environments. With this in mind, EXFO will present its industry-leading 2G/3G/4G NetHawk M5 Analyzers and NetHawk iPro, the ultimate data capture and performance analysis solution, and its BrixMobile service assurance solution, which features a newly integrated highly scalable packet core monitoring engine, allowing deep packet inspection (DPI) of real-time traffic to accurately classify each user's traffic by application. Thanks to BrixMobile, operators can enable subscriber-based, application-level quality monitoring—a must in delivering a high quality of experience (QoE) when assessing LTE and other packet-network environments.

GSMA Mobile World Congress is also the ideal venue to showcase EXFO's best-in-class 2G/3G/4G network simulators for LTE and IMS testing, including the award-winning EAST 500 LTE Capacity Test System, jointly developed with AeroFlex.

Moreover, having recently introduced EtherSAM (ITU-T Y.156sam) and the BV10 Performance Endpoint Unit, EXFO continues to innovate with the SyncWatch-110, the industry's most comprehensive unit to assess network synchronization, including SyncE and IEEE 1588v2. As mobile backhaul networks evolve to support packet-based transmission, maintaining accurate synchronization becomes critical to network performance. If left unchecked, synchronization errors can cause a significant loss of data, reduced network capacity and dropped calls. Thanks to the versatility of the SyncWatch-110, operators can validate, qualify and monitor network synchronization throughout their migration plan.

"EXFO is clearly positioning itself as a leading provider of next-generation test and service assurance solutions for wireless network operators and equipment manufacturers. Our customer success is evidence of our ability to deliver real-world test solutions that enhance and optimize the performance of 3G/4G networks and services, from core to backhaul, and that improve the subscriber quality of experience (QoE) while reducing network lifecycle costs", said Vivian Hudson, Vice-President of EXFO's Service Assurance and Wireless Divisions.

At the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2011, EXFO's product and technology experts will be available to discuss the company's end-to-end assessment solutions for wireless networks. To experience the demos or to speak with EXFO experts, please visit booth 2B 113-114 (Hall 2).
