AXOS E9-2 Intelligent Edge System

In today’s world of ever increasing bandwidth and device growth you need a network that can keep up. The revolutionary AXOS E9-2 Intelligent Edge System leverages the unconstrained architecture that has been perfected in data centers all over the world enabling unprecedented scale and flexibility.

The E9-2 Intelligent Edge System is built on the mature, award winning AXOS Software Defined Access (SDA) architecture. AXOS enables service providers to increase the velocity at which new services are delivered as well as ensures in this fast paced world the network is always on.    



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…”

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

--Garrick Russell, COO and President of GLDS  


CityFibre Adds Brain to its Fiber Brawn

“In Calix we have found a like-minded ally, an innovator that is pushing the boundaries of what is possible when intelligent software meets fiber-only infrastructure. Our partnership enables us to unleash the full power and potential of our fiber networks, creating the nation’s fastest, smartest and most accessible, digital communications platform."

-- Greg Mesch, chief executive of CityFibre



A packet is touched too many times
in today's network

  • Difficult to automate
  • Difficult to coordinate new services

Calix AXOS E9-2 Intelligent Edge System


Dramatically Reduced TCO in data center/central office/headends

Consolidation of functions

  • Reduced needs for separate aggregation switches
  • Simplified path to Intelligent Access with AXOS RPm
  • Centralize subscriber management and Policy with AXOS SMm

Faster deployment and lower cost

  • Fewer systems to purchase
  • Fewer systems to provision and manage
  • Less rack space, HVAC, and power required

Next Generation Central Office

Data centers have grown and perfected distributed architecture over many years.  This architecture ensures that capacity and bandwidth can easily be scaled to the needs of the datacenter at any given time.  The E9 architecture brings the best of the data center thinking to the central office from the elastic nature of adding servers to the technologies utilized to transported traffic between servers, routers and switches within the data center.

Thinking about deploying a CORD (Central Office Re-architected as the Datacenter) architecture? The E9-2 Intelligent Edge System gives you a jumpstart. With the unconstrained AXOS architecture, you can get started with the E9-2’s innovative disaggregated system and easily migrate to a CORD architecture when you’re ready.


Software Defined Access

The modularity of the system extends beyond hardware.  Powered by AXOS, the E9-2 Intelligent Edge System delivers on the promise of Software Defined Access. The fast, always-on, and simple network provides a stateful system that allows incremental enhancements or feature additions. AXOS componentized nature ensures the E9-2 is ideally suited for virtualized functions in a complex network environment. The E9-2 with AXOS can accelerate network transformation by seamlessly coexisting with virtualized architectures, ultimately driving operational complexity and cost out of networks.

Fast. Always On. Simple.

With AXOS, back office integration has never been easier.  Use AXOS Sandbox to build a virtual edge-to-edge Software Defined Access network that speeds OSS integration and software certification with dramatic economic results.
