EXFO Showcases Compact 100G Multiservice Testing at OFC/NFOEC 2013 — Booth 
QUEBEC CITY, March 15, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO, TSX: EXF) 
announced today that it will be attending OFC/NFOEC 2013, March 17-21, 2013, 
in Anaheim, California, in order to demonstrate its test solution for 
deploying, validating and troubleshooting networks up to 100G in the field. 
Steel-Toed and Field-Ready
At this year's event, EXFO will unveil the industry's most compact 10M-to-100G 
testing solution for SONET, SDH, OTN and Ethernet services, setting a new 
benchmark in innovation. Designed for the portable FTB-500 platform, the 
FTB-88100NGE Power Blazer module will enable service providers and network 
operators to support all possible rates up to 100G, as well as a wide range of 
technologies, including legacyTDMand new packet-based services. With 
EXFO's new solution, the challenge of turning up client services up to 100G as 
well as ensuring that they adhere to service-level agreements becomes that 
much simpler. 
All-Optical Cross-Connect Technology
In a joint development effort with DiCon Fiberoptics, EXFO is proud to 
introduce the MXS-9100 MEMS MxN Matrix Optical Switch. By allowing M input 
fibers to be connected to N output fibers in a fully non-blocking manner, the 
MXS-9100 provides physical-layer connectivity and maximum signal fidelity, 
with stability and repeatability, while being protocol and bit-rate 
independent. This all-optical cross-connect technology provides the unique 
combination of low insertion loss, fast switching and high reliability that 
engineers require in lab and manufacturing environments. 
EXFO and Menara Networks
EXFO will also be providing thetesting and compliancebackbone for a 
100GMetroDWDM transmission demonstration based on Menara Networks' OTN CFP 
module. The live demo will be conducted at Menara Networks' booth (1421) and 
will includeEXFO's FTB-500 next-gen network testing platform, the compact 
40G/100G FTB-85100G Packet Blazer multiservice testing module as well as the
