The EX10 helps onsite technicians quickly validate bandwidth speeds up to a total line rate of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (including GPON, XGS-PON) and test residential WiFi 6E to monitor the residential quality of experience (QoE).
- Multigigabit validation including 1, 2.5, 5 and 10 Gigabit interfaces (powered by Speedtest® by Ookla®)
- Latency, download and upload throughput performance metrics with adjustable pass/fail thresholds based on subscribers’ purchased plans
- SFP/SFP+ interface for Speedtest over fiber
- WiFi 6E testing (2.4 GHz, 5 GHz and 6 GHz bands)
- Supports GPON, XGS-PON with PON ID, ONU ID and transmits optical loss (TOL)
- Broadband validation
- WiFi optimization
- QoE: validate core services
The EX10 provides both wireline and wireless testing capability, providing comprehensive insights that field technicians can use to remedy any situation. Operators can prove they deliver both promised throughput and unparalleled quality of experience at the customer premises.
The EX10 is the first device to include all cutting-edge multigigabit interfaces in a simple yet unique tester that anyone with a smart device can use. It lets you turn up 1, 2.5, 5, or even 10 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces for validating broadband access.
The EX10 can validate WiFi 5, 6, and the latest WiFi 6E delivery from room to room. The device uses Speedtest by Ookla to determine whether a room can support video streaming of SD, HD, 4K, and even upcoming 8K resolution. All rooms can be validated for proper delivery of over-the-top (OTT) video streaming services.
The EX10 can also utilize other troubleshooting techniques such as viewing WiFi channel metrics room by room. It has the capability of retrieving the received signal strength indicator (RSSI) and the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) to diagnose WiFi issues properly. The EX10 provides field technicians with insight to solve WiFi issues: moving the router, changing channels, or using extenders.
The EX10 is part of a comprehensive ecosystem designed to ensure seamless service delivery. The connected device securely connects to EXFO Exchange enabling test data management capabilities. This means easier access and better visibility into test results, which translate into data-driven insights through powerful analytics.
The EXFO ecosystem includes essential testers that are interconnected through EXFO Exchange, a collaborative software platform for deploying and maintaining high-quality telecom networks more efficiently. EXFO Exchange interconnects all aspects of the field test ecosystem (including field teams, test results, hardware, and software) in a virtual hub. The platform automates and optimizes field testing and reporting, workflows, and troubleshooting processes.
