SAN JOSE, Calif. – Calix, Inc. today announced that it has formed a strategic partnership with Eurofiber, which is expanding its fiber access network in several European countries with the Intelligent Access EDGE. The open access provider will deploy the software defined, hardware independent Calix AXOS platform to maximize operational efficiency and future proof its network. The versatility of the AXOS platform enables EuroFiber to adopt an everyPON strategy and select the best PON technology based on the growth of its network and the needs of its subscribers.
Eurofiber is a 20-year-old, Netherlands-based fiber innovator with more than 36 thousand kilometers of fiber deployed across the Netherlands, Belgium, and France. The Calix AXOS platform will reduce Eurofiber's total cost of ownership and increase operational efficiency—both of which are distinct advantages over competing hardware-focused solutions. With AXOS and everyPON, Eurofiber benefits from a flexible network architecture featuring Access EDGE systems—the E7-2 Intelligent Modular System and the E9-2 Intelligent Edge System—as well as a clear upgrade path to 10G PON and beyond. Completing the Calix solution is the versatile SMx Services Management Connector, which integrates into Eurofiber's existing OSS systems to deliver the services visibility and management capabilities critical in open access environments.
A budget of $61 billion to $118 billion would enable the US to bring 1-Gig to all locations that get less than 100/20 Mbit/s service that aren't tied to RDOF phase I, ACA Connects/Cartesian study finds.
Today’s access network architecture is under mounting pressure due to a continued surge in the number of connected devices, a proliferation of bandwidth-intensive customer applications and dramatic shifts in usage patterns related to the pandemic, such as work-from-home and e-learning.
Learn why now is the right time for cable operators to build greenfield networks or expand their existing networks with 10G PON, arming customers with high-speed symmetrical broadband. Gain a clear understanding of the drivers impacting the access network and the various approaches being considered to deliver higher speed services. Plus, find out the best practices that operators are employing as they leverage the latest in passive optical technology to future-proof their networks.
