The Only True Software Defined Access Architecture.

SDN, NFV, meet Access

Software Defined Access for Virtual and Physical Systems

AXOS will change forever the way you operate your access network.

The AXOS network operating system and software platform built for the specific needs of the access network accelerates time-to-revenue, eliminates service disruptions, and reduces operational complexity for service providers.

  • Scalable high availability network operating system for uninterrupted services
  • Containerized software components simplify and reduce upgrades to non-events
  • Service and hardware abstraction layers for consistent MOPS across media types
  • Stateful, self-healing operation for best subscriber experience, high satisfaction
  • Extensible for AXOS vServices and 3rd party VNF integration; fully NFV ready

A New Paradigm for Access

Modular, reusable software components that can run on technologically diverse hardware without modification, reducing software qualification time, increasing new service velocity, and mitigating upgrade risks.

  • Rapid deployment of end-to-end services across the entire Access infrastructure
  • No proprietary architecture
  • Validate new features against deployment use cases and solution
  • Reduce time to qualify new systems and software
Learn More

In-service upgrade capabilities and built-in logic that eliminate service disruptions, constrain and automatically recover from faults, and prevent side-effects caused by new software functions or human error.

  • Eliminate unplanned network outage
  • Design for no maintenance windows
  • Constrain failures from new features
  • Eliminate side-effects caused by new fixes
Learn More

Open, standard-based, fully programmable management and control APIs that reduce operational complexity, enable automated workflows, and provide compatibility with SDN-aligned operational supportsystems for maximum interoperability.

  • Automate workflows
  • Reduce complexity to validate, qualify new H/w
  • Reduce time to integrate with IT OSS systems
  • Standards based multi-vendor interoperability 
  • Flexibility of deployment
