Quebec City, Quebec (ots/PRNewswire) -

EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO) (TSX: EXF), the network test, monitoring
and analytics experts, announced that China Mobile Communications
Corporation (CMCC), with the support of EXFO's test solution-the only
one that covered all the test requirements-successfully concluded a
performance verification test for the core networks from 4 major
vendors, confirming whether these NFV-based networks can individually
support 5 million narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) devices.

Since NB-IoT specification got ratified in June 2016,
communication service providers have been preparing to roll out this
service in their network. They are upgrading their network by
deploying additional features to handle the tremendous capacity that
the millions of Internet of Things (IoT) devices will need. Handling
the IoT traffic is fundamentally different from the traditional
mobile broadband or VoLTE traffic. Validating the equipment and the
network is crucial to ensure that they deliver the quality of
experience expected by end users while avoiding costly
post-deployment faults.

EXFO's comprehensive test solution was preferred for three main

- Powerful performance: capacity to simulate millions of IoT devices
on one single server, keeping network configuration simple
- Unique flexibility: ability to adapt to rapidly evolving
specifications and specific requirements
- Extensive test coverage: covers the network from end to end,
including focus on individual nodes

"Communication service providers have to ensure that new IoT
equipment introduced into the network will be compatible with
existing network nodes before they go live," Claudio Mazzuca, EXFO's
Vice-President, Systems and Analytics. "Through our local presence,
we were able to deliver quick turnaround times to adapt to CMCC's
specific requirements. Our test solutions come with unmatched
flexibility giving them an edge in today's rapidly transforming
telecom landscape."

EXFO delivers comprehensive solutions for the validation of
2G/3G/4G/5G networks and equipment for all kinds of services. These
test solutions are also future-proofed to verify unique services for
upcoming 5G networks.
