10G PON and OSS/BSS Integration: Do It Once... Do It Right with AXOS


We are seeing transformational waves of disruptive change introduced into today’s telecom industry. They are being spurred by competition, the move to the cloud, and the advent of new emerging technologies, such as 5G, AI, and chatbots. At the same time, we are seeing demands to support higher bandwidth business services and residential applications continue to grow at an exponential rate. The effect of which are driving many of today’s telecom analysts to declare 2020 as the year 10G PON will take center stage within the minds of many service providers.

However, these waves of transformation, whether tied to the digital revolution or OSS back office integration, are fueling the need for service providers to increase their operational agility, improve their subscribers’ experience, and accelerate their OSS/BSS automation in order to remain relevant. For example, as a result of  digital transformation, networks are becoming increasingly complex, as are the services delivered by them. Subscribers expect a network that scales to their needs and offers innovative digital services that address their specific interests.

As subscriber demand for innovative new services grows and competitive pressures mount, service providers are faced with the need to innovate and simplify their OSS so they can reap the benefits of accelerated time-to-market and time-to-revenue timelines. OSS is really all about mastering and managing change. The complexity of integrating new systems into existing (legacy) OSS/BSS infrastructure is often recognized as a top inhibitor to rapidly deploying new services. In order to deliver service and operational agility, a network must be built on a software platform that automates critical functions. To navigate these challenging waters, you will need to enable end-to-end OSS automation and flexibility through a software platform that easily integrates with your current OSS. Recognizing the need to help you implement these capabilities in your networks, the AXOS, software-defined platform  simplifies network operations and dramatically reduces the time required to integrate your OSS/BSS.

AXOS enables you to transform your business and back office capabilities quickly without disrupting your existing subscriber services. The combination of AXOS and SMx will offer you a powerful end-to-end solution to automate and simplify your OSS/BSS. The AXOS architecture allows you to capitalize on the benefits of simple and consistent software operations regardless of the physical infrastructure layer. It also allows you to benefit from a level of IT integration speed and operational simplicity that has never been realized before.

The time is now for you to confront those transformational waves of change head on. As you look for ways to transform your OSS/BSS in order to improve your back office integration, simply “Do it once, do it right and you’ll never have to do it again” with Calix and AXOS.
