The architecture of AXOS simplifies the business of broadband

Your network, with the platforms and systems that run it, determine your ability to be successful.


Making OSS Integration as ”Easy as 1-2-3”

A revolutionary “integrate once, deploy often” OSS/BSS business transformation

Are you losing market share to competing multiple system operators (MSOs) or fiber broadband overbuilders in your markets?

Learn more on how AXOS and SMx can help you accelerate your OSS/BSS integration timeline and time to revenue capabilities with the following:


AXOS helps GLDS accelerate OSS/BSS integration by 80%

Garrick Russell, COO and President of GLDS explains how AXOS is helping them deliver new solutions to market faster.


“We were not only surprised by the speed of our first integration…we were thrilled by how much easier it is for us to maintain…”

“We were surprised when we integrated the E9-2 System in four weeks…”

--Garrick Russell, COO and President of GLDS    

How can AXOS enable you to deliver new solutions and services at an unprecedented pace?


Architecture is the foundation for your success

Shane Eleniak, Executive Vice President of Products, Calix explains how the architecture of the AXOS platform will help you deploy faster and win against the competition.

Hardware Independence

The AXOS Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) is software that emulates the underlying hardware, isolating the reusable modules above from the low level chipset drivers so you can adopt new technology without impacting subscriber services.


Services Abstraction

The Service Abstraction Layer (SAL) ensures that the data models and interfaces for the services you deploy remain consistent across all access technologies, systems, and deployment applications, simplifying your operations.


Modular Architecture

The AXOS architecture is modular and each module is semantically versioned. Because AXOS modules can be upgraded and restarted independently, the architecture ensures that changes to one function do not impact other system functions.


Stateful Operation

AXOS ensures that the variables required by every module are stored and available upon restart of any individual module. Any module can then be upgraded and restarted without impact to other system functions, ensuring a self-healing network that is always on.


SDN Interfaces

AXOS is the world’s only natively NETCONF enabled OS. Whether service providers are transitioning their networks to SDN today or working with existing OSS/BSS systems, AXOS provides the northbound and southbound connections needed to eliminate middleware and reduce cost and complexity.



How can a software platform accelerate your business transformation?

Software platforms are the innovation engines of our time. After revolutionizing data centers and handheld devices, they are now transforming the business of broadband.

The AXOS software platform brings together:

  • a robust network operating system
  • independent modular applications
  • an ecosystem of 3rd party developers

All optimized for the access network – a software platform built to save you from having to go into the cold rain and snow, or wherever your network operates.



AXOS is ready for anyPON, anyPHY and anySDN

With AXOS hardware independence, modular software, and SDN standard interfaces, you can go anywhere and automate everything.

AXOS hardware independent solutions go the last mile to simplify your subscriber services network.
