Calix P-Series

The Calix P-Series is the industry's broadest portfolio of innovative, standards-based fiber premises devices for residential and business services. Calix is the most widely deployed fiber access vendor in North America, with over 1000 service providers deploying today.

Calix has a long history of innovation in fiber access, including our unique auto-detect technology in which the premises device supports both 2.5 GPON or point-to-point gigabit Ethernet. If the technology used at the OLT is changed, the Calix premises device automatically senses the change and synchs up to the different standard. This technology provides the ultimate in future-proofing the network and ensures a smooth migration for service providers, without the high cost of truck rolls or changing out ONTs at the customer premises.

The newest additions to the Calix premises portfolio are the 844G and 854G GigaCenters. These bring the power of Carrier Class Wi-Fi to fiber connected homes, providing the best gigabit user experience available today. Supporting the newest 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard and simultaneous 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands, the GigaCenters bring unprecedented speeds and whole home coverage to consumers. With the GigaCenters, Calix customers can eliminate or sharply reduce the need to rewire homes, lowering the cost and increasing the velocity of deploying fiber to the home.

Bringing Carrier Class Wi-Fi to the Home

Carrier class Wi-Fi is the confluence of a set of cutting-edge technologies that represents the dawn of a new era in the fiber connected home, where all services can now be delivered over Wi-Fi, including linear broadcast IPTV. No need for coaxial cables, fishing cable through walls, or seven hour truck rolls to install new IPTV customers. Sound too good to be true? Here’s how it is achieved…

Calix carrier class Wi-Fi utilizes the latest and most advanced 802.11ac “wave 2” 5 GHz band Wi-Fi technology, and complements it by using 4X4 Multi-User Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technology. This combination provides superior coverage and speed over any other Wi-Fi technology available today. The solution is then enhanced using beamforming to concentrate Wi-Fi energy on devices in the home like set top boxes that may be at the perimeter of the house, such as in bedrooms or basements. The Calix GigaCenters and fiber access systems supplement these technologies with quality of service capabilities that ensure that picture quality is always maintained at the highest level. The outcome: Unprecedented performance in wireless speed and coverage that reaches throughout the entire home.

The GigaCenter is the first network device to incorporate this groundbreaking technology, and in the coming year all of the major set top box vendors will be introducing this technology into their set top boxes. In fact, many major vendors have already shipped millions of set top boxes with similar technology over 5 GHz using the 802.11n Wi-Fi standard. Since Wi-Fi standards are backward compatible, you can start rolling out IPTV services over the GigaCenter’s Wi-Fi with set top boxes you may already have in the network.

By being the first-to-market with this new technology, Calix enables our customers to prepare for this emerging home ecosystem while still supporting legacy devices over 2.4 GHz. Our customers trust Calix to protect their capital investments by providing technology with a close fit to consumers’ future needs, while being affordable today.
