“The ability to scale services up to 100 gigabits per second, while driving customer experience to new levels... demonstrates that CityFibre’s commitment to the UK’s digital future goes far beyond simply putting fiber in the ground”

--Greg Mesch, chief executive of CityFibre 


One of the most innovative network operators in Europe, CityFibre has been partnering with leading Internet service providers like Vodafone to bring gigabit services to UK communities for several years. With a goal of reaching to up to one million UK homes and businesses with gigabit fiber service by 2021, and targeting five million by 2025, CityFibre is rapidly transforming the UK broadband market.

Calix and CityFibre announced a partnership to bring Software Defined Access (SDA) to its network with the introduction of the AXOS platform, allowing CityFibre to emerge as the UK’s only advanced-intelligence, wholesale infrastructure company. As it expands the reach of its fiber network, CityFibre is also looking to support the deployment of NG-PON2, 5G, and Artificial Intelligence, as well as autonomous and IoT technologies.
