EXFO introduces the EX10!


Purpose-built features for the right job

With a wide array of innovative features and capabilities, the EX10 offers three comprehensive bundles—each designed to fulfill the application at hand.


Validate customer service-level agreements (SLAs) and prove that services are delivered as promised. From 1G to 10G, the EX10 provides reliable and repeatable metrics along with the birth certificate to share with the subscriber.

Guarantee speeds up to 10G on your XGS-PON link while also ensuring connection to the right OLT. With PON ID, ONU ID and transmit optical loss (TOL), the EX10 is loaded with all the right tools for successful service activation on the first try, without even entering customer premises.

Ensure full and seamless user-experience to subscribers by leveraging the EX10’s WiFi capabilities. Guarantee 8K video streaming—for each room in the dwelling—while working at home. The EX10 supports the latest WiFi 6E technology, making it now possible to validate WiFi speeds greater than 1G, everywhere on 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.

WiFi validation
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.

Advanced troubleshooting (WiFi)
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 properly diagnose WiFi issues. The EX10 provides field technicians with insight to solve WiFi issues: moving the router, changing channels or using extenders.
