EXFO Inc. joins hands with China Mobile Communications Corporation (CMCC) to successfully conclude a performance verification test for the core networks from 4 major vendors. The test confirmed whether these NFV-based networks can individually support 5 million narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) devices.
Communication service providers have been preparing to upgrade 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.
“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,” shared Claudio Mazzuca, Vice-President, Systems and Analytics at EXFO. “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.”
