Calix, Inc. has announced a host of enhancements for the AXOS platform that simplify operational infrastructure, capabilities, and processes. These enhancements further streamline a platform that already enables communication service providers (CSPs) to eliminate up to 75 percent of process steps and deliver top quality services to their subscribers.
In addition to these AXOS platform upgrades, Calix Professional Services has updated its packaged offering specifically for customers deploying the AXOS SMx Services Management Connector.
The AXOS SMx Deployment Service provides CSPs with AXOS network design, turn up, testing, and deployment, along with orientation on service configuration and subscriber provisioning using the SMx Connector. With this service, CSPs dramatically accelerate their ability to not only deploy their AXOS network, but also to install, turn up, and run SMx capabilities quickly and easily.
“The ability to streamline and automate all of the functions related to subscriber provisioning and services management are critical to the timely deployment of subscriber services,” said Teresa Mastrangelo, principal analyst of Broadbandtrends. “Embracing a software defined architecture like AXOS can dramatically simplify operations, from the data center edge to the subscriber edge to keep the focus on the subscriber experience.”
This latest AXOS software release includes several key enhancements focused on putting the subscriber at the forefront.
Here are four key highlights:
• Subscriber Profile Creation: allows network architects to create a single source of information in the CLI and synchronize to the GUI to ensure continuity with operations
• Services Profile Management: establishes a common profile for services across an entire network, even in regions that would normally have separate SIP servers, providing the ability to change service provisioning across groups of subscribers simultaneously
• Simplified Subscriber and Services Inventory Reporting: enables CSPs to perform subscriber analytics and generate inventory management reports, providing increased visibility into subscriber bandwidth usage patterns
• Auto-Select ONT: streamlines subscriber service delivery by auto-selecting the subscriber’s associated ONT, ensuring an accelerated, more seamless service provisioning experience
“These AXOS software upgrades deliver critical functionality for service providers who are growing rapidly and need to differentiate by continuously improving the subscriber experience,” said Shane Eleniak, SVP of platforms for Calix. “When combined with our Professional Services, these innovative CSPs ensure that they have the right expertise and the tools to accelerate the delivery of an optimized subscriber experience – from service fulfillment through to assurance and billing.”
