EXFO announces Max 635 G-Fast certification
Following an extensive testing process, EXFO announced in August 2017 that the MAX-635G—its complete Gfast, DSL and copper test set—has been declared a Gfast Certified Interoperable product as per Broadband Forum (BBF) IR-337.
Gfast is an ultra-fast broadband access standard for copper local loops shorter than 500 m, with aggregate data rates between 150 Mbit/s and 1 Gbit/s depending on several factors (i.e. loop length, physical faults, noise, etc.). Gfast deployments typically coincide with fibre-to-the-distribution-point (FTTdp) installations.
The MAX-635G was tested by the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL), successfully conforming to a rigorous set of tests, ensuring the device interoperated and provided a level of performance and stability required for service provider deployments.
With best-in-class 35 MHz copper testing capabilities, the MAX-635G allows users to confidently test their Gfast and VDSL2 deployments. EXFO’s MAX-635G is the only Gfast Certified handheld equipped device with the Ookla Speedtest application for proving throughput performance.
