EXFO Seeks Acquisitions

EXFO Inc (TSX:EXF) continues to explore strategic acquisitions.

CENX Collaborates with Accedian Networks, EXFO and JDSU, for Product Interoperability

CENX announced that it is collaborating with MEF member companies, Accedian Networks, EXFO and JDSU, for product interoperability, to usher in the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) vision of The Third Network. MEF's vision of a new network, which marries the ubiquity of the public Internet with the performance and security benefits of private networks, can only be realized with a vendor ecosystem that supports open programmable interfaces for agile service fulfillment and assurance. The Third Network vision converges with other industry initiatives: LTE, Cloud, SDN and NFV. This networking transformation brings tremendous revenue and savings opportunities yet introduces complexity to service providers' operations. CENX's Cortx Service Orchestrator provides the needed abstraction layer for streamlined services management across network domains and technologies. Using open interfaces, Cortx Service Orchestrator interoperates with a broad industry ecosystem, including leading probe and test vendors, OSS, NMS, SDN Controllers, NFV Orchestrators, and network elements, to initiate actions and mine network big data in real-time. Analytics results are visualized on the Cortx graphical dashboards. CENX has partnered with Accedian for its real-time network monitoring capabilities. The Accedian V-NID solution measures network performance from the core to edge and sends detailed metrics to the Cortx Service Orchestrator, enabling services turn-up verification and continuous SLA monitoring. CENX's Cortx Service Orchestrator and EXFO's BrixWorx assurance system are jointly deployed at a mobile Tier 1 service provider for real-time troubleshooting and SLA management in its backhaul network. The BrixWorx system delivers highly scalable and reliable service validation and assurance for IP/Ethernet services, enabling secure, remote deployment and management across the entire network. Cortx Service Orchestrator consumes BrixWorx's Service Operations, Administration and Maintenance (SOAM) test results for real-time analytics of utilization and performance. CENX's Cortx Service Orchestrator has been jointly deployed with JDSU's EtherAssure Solution in a Tier 1 service provider's mobile backhaul network for service activation, real-time fault isolation, and performance management. The JDSU EtherAssure solution, combined with PacketPortal JMEP (JDSU's Micro Ethernet Probe), is a scalable, vendor-agnostic, end-to-end assurance solution for Ethernet services activation and real-time monitoring.
