The TestFlow solution
EXFO’s TestFlow leverages back-office systems and web-based tools to automate and orchestrate an end‑to‑end testing process.
Step 1: Create intelligent digitized job definitions including predefined test-point IDs, required tests and applicable test configurations for optimized network standards compliance.
Step 2: Distribute jobs to test units and mobile devices.
Step 3: Run consistent job-specific test sequences on test units and mobile devices without the need for other applications or manuals. Benefit from automated step-by-step tasks and job closeout with dynamic reporting and task-sensitive help for maximized technician efficiency.
Step 4: Automatically upload test results with predefined filenames to centralized TestFlow server for results-to-metrics processing and immediate and complete closeout package audit.
Step 5: Analyze user-defined testing metrics from centralized TestFlow database and verify compliance with network design standards. Get automatic test-results analytics and actionable information for visible network testing and proactive management with streamlined work-compliance auditing.
Step 6: Integrate TestFlow server with back-office systems using open application programming interfaces (APIs).
Transform field-testing operations via analytics
TestFlow delivers different reports that audit, track and trend job efficiency, quality and status. All test results are easily viewable for post analysis to a specific test point by simply clicking on the item of concern—eliminating the headaches of trying to review a closeout package or verify results through an audit. Tasks and test results are objectively identified in red- or green-colored notifications and are clearly visible.
Link everything. Unify all results.
EXFO Link is a mobile application designed to aggregate data and ease consolidation of test results from EXFO or third-party-vendor test sets.
With EXFO Link, test results can be transferred to a smart device from any test set using a wireless or wired link.
From the smart device, results are sent to a centralized database to facilitate consolidation of files from multiple sources into one location.
