QUEBEC CITY, Nov. 30, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EXFO Inc. (Nasdaq:EXFO) (TSX:EXF) announced today that its BrixView IP video reporting solution received the 2010 TelcoTV Vision Award for Test and Measurement, which recognizes the most innovative and visionary products presented at this year's event. Finalists had been selected based on their innovation leadership by a panel of industry executives and analysts.
Part of EXFO's BrixVision IPTV Service Assurance solution, BrixView IP Video Reports brings business intelligence (BI) to IP video networking. It offers scalable, simple, easily customizable reports that enable various network operator stakeholders—executives, engineering, sales, marketing, billing—to gain end-to-end visibility into the network-wide performance of IPTV services.
This highly innovative, Web-based business intelligence application provides a flexible platform for multiple users and audiences. For example, sales team members can use it to monitor the problems identified within the network and keep an eye on the subscriber churn rate, while marketing specialists can get immediate feedback on the success of their programs based on pay-per-view numbers. Executives can get specific reports that provide at-a-glance information on network capacity and error rates, while engineers can easily generate reports that let them see outages over time and mean-time-to-repair statistics.
Ultimately, while BrixVision IPTV Service Assurance provides end-to-end visibility into the performance of IPTV services, the BrixView IP video reporting solution performs advanced analysis and aggregation of data to produce advanced reports, helping service provider organizations boost their overall efficiency with enhanced marketing, reduced network outages, higher service quality and less subscriber churn.
"This award is a recognition from the IP video industry that EXFO provides one of the most flexible and comprehensive monitoring solutions available," said Vivian Hudson, EXFO's Vice-President—Service Assurance and Wireless Divisions. "Our integrated multiplay platform, featuring the BrixView IP video reporting solution, allows our customers to create more efficient business processes with lower OPEX and CAPEX, which translates directly into business success."
