Cable operators are re-architecting their networks to support a fiber deep, distributed access architecture. While FTTH systems being deployed today are designed to integrate into existing DOCSIS back office systems, little consideration has been given to how operators will transition to a Software Defined Network – until now. Calix's virtualized DOCSIS connector uniquely leverages common NETCONF/YANG interfaces that enable an elegant transition from DOCSIS provisioning to SDN control that's as easy as 1-2-3.
Calix DPx software, along with AXOS based systems, facilitates migration to SDN by leveraging standard NETCONF interfaces to enable direct integration to anySDN controller.
No change to the hardware. No change to the services. No change to operation.
The cost to integrate new vendors and technology is one of the largest impediments to network transformation. Systems need to move beyond DOCSIS provisioning. Don’t make the PON system you deploy today, be your regrettable spend of tomorrow.
Based on a microservice architecture, AXOS DPx is the industry’s first virtualized DOCSIS service that leverages common NETCONF/YANG interfaces to enable a seamless pivot to SDN.
Calix expert, Sachin Vasudeva, discusses the benefits of Calix’s revolutionary approach to container based connectors based on a microservice architecture.
"As we move to a FTTH infrastructure and lay the foundation for the virtualized networks of the future with Calix AXOS solutions, we will be able to roll out new services faster than ever before and deliver our subscribers a quality of experience like no other."

Cable operators are extending the benefits of Software Defined Networking and network virtualization into the access network's central office and cable head end. Software Defined Access (SDA) is the gateway for building next generation access networks.
Calix offers a portfolio of services that will help speed your time to market and return on investment as you plan and deploy new services for your subscribers.
