Calix AXOS SMx can simplify your operations by eliminating up to 75% of your process steps


  • a decreased time to market for new service introductions
  • a dramatic reduction in service delivery intervals
  • a remarkably simplified operational process

The AXOS SMx Connector is a cloud-ready software application for element and network management that utilizes an Open Daylight (ODL) SDN controller infrastructure to provide a robust development and service normalization environment, extensible to new applications and enabling quick integration into other open platforms. You can use SMx to connect the AXOS platform to existing operational systems or fill in the missing pieces of your SDN orchestration platform.


AXOS continues to increase innovation and speed deployment

AXOS helps GLDS reduce OSS/BSS integration time by 80% and accelerates service provider time to revenue.

“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…”

--Garrick Russell, COO and President of GLDS
