We are living in a competitive world. Looking at the broadband market, there is little doubt that DOCSIS and FTTH technologies are “eating the lunch” of traditional copper broadband. The latest data from Leichtman Research Group shows that in 2016, cable operators in the U.S. added a staggering 3.3 million new high-speed Internet subscribers, while their traditional telecom counterparts lost approximately 600,000.
In this competitive environment, property management companies and end users will not tolerate long lead times on service fulfillment and inconvenient technician service calls. They have choices.
At the same time, technician productivity is continually challenged as they face an ever-growing variety of distributed access nodes due to copper loop shortening. This increased workload results in unmanageable delays in service order activation. Telecom companies must strive to eliminate manual steps in these processes minimizing the need for time-consuming truck rolls.
The Calix AXOS platform provides zero-touch service activation as part of our G.fast gigabit solution which includes the E5-16F and E3-16F Intelligent Node. This removes the need for prolonged and error prone provisioning typically completed by the technician on site. This advanced flow-through provisioning solution automatically downloads service activation data using the Netconf/YANG protocols when the new equipment is added or when subscriber services change.
It’s time to fight back, and Calix AXOS G.fast systems are just the solution for telecom companies where time to market and competitive speeds are essential in order to win.
Stay tuned for Calix’s upcoming blog featuring G.fast installation customer success stories.
So, what would it mean to you or to the MDU landlords if you could install and deploy a gigabit service to the apartments in minutes, not days or weeks?
