SAN JOSE, Calif. – Calix, Inc. announced that WWZ Energie AG, a leading Swiss quadruple-play cable broadband provider is future-proofing its business by partnering with Calix. WWZ is using the Calix Intelligent Access EDGE solution to complete a migration from coax-based DOCSIS to fiber, enabling it to offer high speed symmetrical bandwidth and deliver unmatched services to subscribers. At the same time, Calix is helping position WWZ to build an end-to-end, data-driven business and own the subscriber experience. Since operationalizing this 10G-capable fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network in the last year, WWZ has cut its operating costs by 50 percent.
In the face of continuously increasing subscriber bandwidth demands, WWZ is turning up XGS-PON service across its network. The Swiss operator leveraged the AXOS E9-2 Intelligent EDGE System to provision services in eight hours—a process that typically takes months. The simplified architecture has enabled the Swiss operator to embrace an everyPON strategy, upgrading to the 10G technology of its choice, when and where it is required.
Zug-based WWZ, one of the leading cable operators in Switzerland, first announced its digitization initiative last year. The initiative enables it to provide a rich broadband experience with the benefits of symmetrical high-bandwidth broadband—previously unattainable through the legacy DOCSIS infrastructure.
