Calix introduced Calix Cloud, its second-generation family of subscription services for network data analytics and subscriber experience assurance.
Leveraging Compass cloud services Calix supports over 400 customers five years after its introduction,
Each Cloud subscription focuses on a specific key business function within the service provider organization.
By providing insights tailored to each discipline, Calix Cloud can unleash the power of the cloud at a granular level, turning data “noise” into targeted and actionable network and subscriber insights.
“With more than 400 service providers already relying on Calix for their access cloud services, we have gained invaluable feedback over these last five years that we continue to integrate into our innovation cycle based on the most pertinent and transformative issues facing service providers today,” said Miguel Alonso, Calix vice president of cloud services.
“By leveraging Calix Cloud to discover insights, simplify their operations, and elevate their business and their subscriber experience, service providers will benefit from unprecedented agility andgain clear competitive advantage.”
Customer deployments of Calix Cloud are scheduled for first quarter, 2017.
Calix also unveiled the AXOS E9-2 Intelligent Edge System, a system that accelerates service providers’ transition to NG-PON2.
The E9-2 is promised to deliver reduction in total cost of ownership (TCO) for service providers by collapsing access, aggregation, and service edge functions, including routing and subscriber management, into a single system.
Selected for NG-PON2 lab testing in Verizon’s Innovation Lab in Waltham, MA earlier this year, the AXOS E9-2 allows service providers to converge mobile, business, and residential services networks into one network.
“With NG-PON2 coming to the market early next year, bandwidth intensive applications like 5G mobile backhaul and multi-tenant business locations will be the first to benefit from the technology,” said Matt Davis, program director for IDC.
The E9-2 Intelligent Edge System is a carrier class system featuring two universal line card slots. The first cards available will be the E9-2 NG1601 access line card and the CLX3001 system aggregation and control card.
The NG1601 supports 16 ports of NG-PON2 and XGS-PON in addition to supporting co-existence with other PON technologies, such as GPON.
The CLX3001 supports management, control, and data plane redundancy as well as Layer 2 switching for both business and residential services and Layer 3 routing for residential services.
