EXFO has announced that the new BrixHawk Distributed Analyzer will be showcased next week at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Now commercially available, this latest EXFO innovation addresses a currently urgent need for measuring network and application quality of service (QoS) and determining subscribers’ quality of experience (QoE).
Thanks to superior performance, real-time capabilities and integrated deep packet inspection (DPI) technology, the BrixHawk DA offers more advanced user-plane analysis, enabling the functional and quality issues experienced by subscribers to be found—and fixed—faster. In addition to increasing efficiency and reducing risk during network rollout, this helps retain more satisfied customers and reduce testing-related OPEX once the network is deployed. Significantly faster LTE/3G network rollouts can be achieved while increasing confidence in a first-time-right launch.
Based on a modular architecture, the BrixHawk DA system delivers real-time analysis results and can easily be scaled up as testing needs change, enabling customers to only invest as needed. For example, they can later evolve to a 24/7/365 network monitoring solution and reuse their BrixHawk DA hardware and software investment to scale their system with minimal re-training, hassle and cost. EXFO is the only provider to offer such seamless scalability from analysis to monitoring systems.
“The BrixHawk DA boasts the industry’s most powerful technology and superior real-time performance, enabling more detailed user-plane analysis and allowing users to significantly speed up the resolution of functional and quality issues,” said Matti Palomäki, Vice-President of EXFO’s Wireless Division. “The large number of customer evaluations currently ongoing in NEM verification labs, MNO LTE trials and deployments—including a world-leading operator—clearly shows that there is great interest on the market for our new BrixHawk DA.”
