EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO, TSX: EXF) has released the MaxTester 635G (MAX-635G) test set, a handheld G.fast CPE emulation instrument that also can be used for VDSL2 and ADSL2+ applications. The test and measurement systems supplier says that technicians can use the new unit to verify services at data rates up to 1 Gbps.

The MAX-635G supports ITU-T G.9700 and G.9701 G.fast recommendations for multiplay service testing and copper network fault-finding. Users will benefit from the unit's touchscreen navigation and asset and data field management support via EXFO Sync and EXFO Connect mobile and cloud-based features, the company asserts.

"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. They are attracted by its fiber-like speeds, which can be achieved more economically than full fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) deployments.”
