Simplify your network and the operation of it,
so you can focus on growing your business

With Network Innovation Platform (AXOS), you will dramatically simplify your operations through its fully abstracted service layer, hardware independence, common service models and workflows, as well as a stateful, always-on environment.

It will revolutionize your access network forever.


Intelligent Access EDGE Software

AXOS modular architecture allows service providers to choose the network architecture that fits their deployment scenarios, from a traditional Layer 2 network architecture to a simplified layer 3 network architecture that enables consolidation of subscriber-related functions.

How to bring network reliability, security, and simplicity within reach

With the ever-increasing demand for broadband, is your network keeping up?

Don’t let inefficiencies like a flat Layer 2 network or broadcast storms take over your subscriber experience. Stay ahead of their experience by bringing better reliability and security to your network.

Is your network set up to thrive in the long run?

As your subscriber base grows rapidly, are you forced to build and deploy your network so quicky that your operations colleagues may need to spend their days troubleshooting with temporary, short-term solutions?

Planning for network design simplicity could be the answer to staying agile in the long run. A simplified network approach could give you more time to work closely with broadband operations colleagues to improve subscriber satisfaction and continually scale service deployment faster in the future.
