Building on a decade of investment in the Intelligent Access EDGE and Revenue EDGE platforms to deliver an unrivaled pace of broadband innovation, Calix announced Wi-Fi on the Go at its ConneXions. Complete with a subscriber-facing add-on to Revenue EDGE Suites, MyCommunityIQ will enable broadband service providers (BSPs) to extend the ultimate Wi-Fi experience they’ve delivered in their subscribers’ homes for years beyond the front door and into the community. BSPs can now dramatically grow their value in their communities by securely extending broadband services to neighborhoods, local schools and libraries, as well as health, fire, and safety personnel leveraging the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Passpoint® protocol with a single sign-on (SSO).
Calix also introduced the Calix Small Business Solution at ConneXions. This turnkey offering gives broadband service providers (BSPs) everything necessary to meet the unique needs of their small business customers. Using the Calix Small Business Solution, BSPs can easily deliver robust managed Wi-Fi services that enable small businesses to support their staff and customers with essential business connectivity. The solution also delivers premises monitoring services that streamline operations and grow revenue. The Calix Small Business Solution will be available as SmallBizIQ through a small business version of the mobile app, CommandIQ for Business. All told, this new offering will enable BSPs to quickly capitalize on the vast and rapidly growing small business market opportunity and drive new revenue streams.
