The most powerful and cost-effective VDSL2 installation and repair testers on the market, the MaxTester 610 and 635 help service providers deploy and maintain the latest ADSL2+ and VDSL2 technology while meeting budget constraints.

QUEBEC CITY, May 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO) (TSX: EXF) announced today the launch of the MaxTester 610 Copper Test Set and MaxTester 635 Copper, DSL and Multiplay Test Set, the most powerful, intelligent and cost-effective VDSL2 installation and repair testers currently on the market. The newest additions to EXFO's expanding copper access test offering, the MAX-610 and MAX-635 help service providers deploy the latest ADSL2+ and VDSL2 technology while keeping costs in check.

Telecom service providers are continuously faced with the issue of remaining competitive in delivering broadband to subscribers. FTTH is still quite expensive to install, so reusing copper and maximizing its potential is what the new DSL technologies enable. Previously available installation testers lacked the wideband capabilities necessary for testing VDSL2 circuits. Perfectly aligned with the new technologies, the MaxTester series bridges this gap, addressing the needs of installers to more quickly identify and interpret circuit troubles and restore service.

Adding to the existing MAX-630 ADSL2+/VDSL2 Multiplay Tester, the MaxTester 610 and 635 provide full fault location capabilities (TDR, RFL) and true 30 MHz wideband copper testing in support of ADSL2+ and VDSL2 technologies. Featuring an integrated ADSL2+/VDSL2 modem, the MAX-635 supports bonding, vectoring and G.INP, the latest DSL technologies to extend the reach and rate of DSL—using two pairs to deliver high-speed multiplay services over longer distances and/or at higher data rates.

The new MaxTester units also include the unique SmartRâ„¢ test suite, which automatically runs key copper tests, and intelligently analyzes the results to enable technicians to quickly identify and locate faults more reliably than ever before. This EXFO innovation directly leads to a significant increase in operational efficiency by any level of technician and provides a critical tool to enable service providers to reduce their repeat report rates.
