3 Rivers Communications: Simplifying Active Ethernet Business and Operations with AXOS

Is your current access network environment going through another evolutionary wave of change? Are you struggling with ways to optimize your network operations in order to drive increased operational efficiencies?

As networks and operations become more software defined, the ability to handle the added layers of complexity in delivering next generation broadband services becomes more difficult to operationalize and manage. This rings true especially in the areas of quality of experience, resource efficiency, reliability, and cost efficiency.

Calix announced the latest AXOS innovation in the Active Ethernet (AE) market on August 21 which delivered software-defined ONT management and provisioning functionality on the E7-2 Gigabit Ethernet line card. The combination of the AXOS platform and the ONT management capabilities delivered by the GE-24 r2 line card provides the optimal AE service delivery solution, one that delivers simplicity, a “just like PON” service management and provisioning experience, and true differentiation to the marketplace.

This future proofing of AE is driven by abstracting AE services from the ONTs and associated servers into AXOS, removing dependence on the hardware. As is the case with GPON, 10G PON, or Gfast, by abstracting services for AE into AXOS, you can create a common operation, service management, and provisioning model, dramatically simplifying your service deployments.
