QUEBEC CITY, Feb. 1, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO), (TSX: EXF) today announced the introduction of its MaxTester 635G (MAX-635G) test set, a handheld G.fast CPE emulation solution that supports ITU-T G.9700 and G.9701 recommendations, as well as current VDSL2 and ADSL2+ technologies. The MAX-635G is a must for operators rolling out ultra-broadband to subscribers in today's highly competitive broadband residential services market.

In addition to supporting G.fast, EXFO's MAX-635G offers multiplay service testing with industry leading, copper fault-finding capabilities. The MAX-635G provides touchscreen navigation and superior asset and data field management support using EXFO Sync and EXFO Connect mobile and cloud-based solutions.

"EXFO has successfully demonstrated the MAX-635G G.fast test solution to a number of major service providers and we are very excited by the resulting interest and feedback concerning this product," said Stéphane Chabot, Vice-President of EXFO's Physical Layer Test Division. "We are seeing significant interest from our customers concerning the deployment of new G.fast technology solutions.
