AXOS is redefining the access network

Simplify your network
and operations with a platform
that accelerates your time to revenue

The architecture of AXOS simplifies the business of broadband

Your network and the platforms and systems that run it determine your ability to be successful. Transform your business with an architecture that simplifies your network and operations so you can focus on your business and beat your competition!


AXOS helps GLDS accelerate OSS/BSS integration by 80%

“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    


Reduce your time to market with AXOS

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


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


Architecture is the foundation for your success

Shane Eleniak, VP 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.
