EXFO Inc. has announced today the launch of the EXFO Apps section of the newly introduced EXFO Store. Accessible directly from any EXFO FTB platform, this portal reflects EXFO’s commitment to deliver software applications that boost everyday field-testing efficiency and productivity.
EXFO’s FTB test platforms now offer 3G, VPN and Wi-Fi connectivity, providing users with real-time, 24/7 access to the EXFO Apps portal, right from the field. This unmatched data connectivity to the FTB platforms provides users with real-time notifications of new test application releases as they become available. In addition, EXFO Apps users can benefit from on-the-spot training through on-demand “How-To” video capsules. Downloadable and viewable on the FTB platforms, these capsules provide field technicians with application-specific, EXFO-recommended test methods and procedures.
The exclusive applications found in EXFO Apps enable FTB platform users to work faster and smarter, with an immediate positive impact on test-routine efficiency and everyday productivity. In fact, the software applications—such as ConnectorMax and EXpert IPTV—can run simultaneously with the platform’s test modules. In addition, EXFO is the first to introduce on-demand timed trials of all test applications, allowing users to benefit from test enhancements immediately in a “try-before-you-buy” environment. All software upgrades can be automated through the EXFO Connect systems, another key element for field productivity enhancements.
“The vision behind the FTB Ecosystem is to offer our customers the right tools to help them face their biggest single challenge: controlling their operating expenses,” said Étienne Gagnon, EXFO’s Vice-President of Product Management and Marketing. “The EXFO Apps portal is another key component of the FTB Ecosystem. It enables network operators to provide their teams with value-added software applications that boost their on-field productivity.”
