Calix Intros AXOS DPx for Cable Operators
PETALUMA, Calif. -- Calix, Inc. (NYSE:CALX), the world leader in Subscriber Driven Intelligent Access, today announced AXOS DPx Connector, a DOCSIS Virtualized Network Function (VNF) based on a microservices architecture, enabling Software Defined Access (SDA) for cable operators. AXOS DPx provides cable operators a simple “plug and play” solution to integrate AXOS Systems into their existing DOCSIS back office systems. Utilizing a VNF architecture, Software Defined Network (SDN) ready NETCONF interfaces, and standards-based YANG models, AXOS DPx enables MSOs to leverage DOCSIS, as well as the AXOS anyPHY™, anySDN™, ecosystem.
Calix pioneered SDA to enable service providers to transform their businesses and best align the device enabled subscribers with their content and applications in the cloud. For cable operators, the SDA architecture allows them to leverage the advantages of DOCSIS, rapidly deliver new services, and adopt new technologies while being free to immediately integrate the advantages of SDN into their access network. Premier cable solutions provider Momentum Telecom recognized the benefits of providing a simplified path to SDA for its broad cable provider customer base, and has coordinated with Calix to integrate AXOS DPx Connector into its widely deployed, DOCSIS-based BBX Broadband Management platform.
“Calix recognizes that SDA aligns well with the business direction of many MSOs,” said Michael Weening, Calix executive vice president of sales and marketing. “By connecting DOCSIS to AXOS, the world’s only true Software Defined Access Platform, cable operators are free to choose the technology that will allow them to deliver the best subscriber experience, at the lowest cost and at the fastest time to market. As cable operators move to SDN in the future, AXOS’s native NETCONF interface, standards based YANG models, and pre-integrated partners like Momentum Telecom enable a seamless path to SDN if and when it makes sense for their business.”
