Pocket-sized network speed tester
21 February 2018, Test & Measurement

EXFO unveiled the EX1, a pocket-sized solution enabling technicians to measure subscribers’ real-life throughput – up to full line rate Gigabit Ethernet – using the same method they do: Speedtest by Ookla. Multipurpose and portable, the instrument is ready to evolve with networks and provide active testing capabilities for complete service lifecycle testing and continuous or on-demand performance monitoring at points of contention – key to delivering consistent QoE throughout the transition to virtual networks.

To confirm that customers get what they pay for, residential and business Ethernet subscribers measure actual throughput/speed using off-the-shelf solutions that fall short in capturing correct speed rates. Performing speed tests using a dedicated carrier-grade device is necessary to provide subscribers with reliable proof that speed delivered and service level agreement (SLA) rates match.

In addition, with its future-proof, scalable platform, the EX1 is ready to support among others the evolving applications such as Wi-Fi testing capabilities.

Intermittent quality issues take more time to troubleshoot, requiring a flexible monitoring solution that can stay in place as long as required. The EX1’s portable design and extensive feature set (including over 140 tests) make it the best choice for on-demand performance testing at any interval or any moment.

Technicians can simply connect to the EX1 through their smart device for an untethered testing experience. Together with its monitoring capabilities, it provides a precise and actionable data intelligence tool that’s ideal for use in service commissioning or break/fix scenarios.
