Automating the service lifecycle for improved quality, responsiveness, and accuracy.

Simplify your operations by reducing integration steps
by 75% or more with AXOS SMx


  • 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.

Streamline operational workflows

Automated Network Service Provisioning

Our latest release comes with updates to the Intelligent Access EDGE solution, introducing a dynamic feature delivered by SMx that enables you to automatically pre-provision subscriber services without the OLT. This capability allows you to simplify your ONT activation process by dramatically reducing the time required to install and turn up new services. To see how these new features work, watch the webinar replay to the right.

Access EDGE Tools: SMx Tips and Tricks

The time you spend on daily operational workflows such as service provisioning, backups and restores, and AXOS system upgrades are taking away from time you could be spending on the subscriber. Join us for this interactive session to learn valuable “tips and tricks” on how you can use the new enhancements in the Services Management Connector (SMx) to simplify and automate your daily operational workflows.


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:


With AXOS SMx, everything starts with the subscriber


Subscribers are the lifeblood of your business

They enable growth and the experience that those subscribers have will determine your company’s success. By simplifying operational support processes and services provisioning capabilities, you can deliver high quality services to subscribers rapidly. ​

Calix offers a set of SMx Turn Up and Deployment Services that can help you accelerate your SMx deployment efforts. ​


SMx leading the next wave of innovation in operational transformation


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  


Calix partner NISC leverages AXOS and SMx to simplify OSS/BSS operations

“…we drive operational efficiencies from our systems and use what Calix has to really make our members, our customers much more efficient with their back office operations”

--Ryan Larson, Senior Product Line Manager


Calix AXOS DPx connector

The world's first virtualized DOCSIS connector for everyPON

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.

  • DPx enables DOCSIS provisioning of everyPON: GPON, XGSPON, NGPON2, 10GEPON
  • DPx and AXOS add IP service flow awareness enabling full support of cable operator services
  • Leveraging AXOS’ common YANG model, DPx supports all platforms (GPON, XGSPON, 10GEPON) and all form factors (chassis or node)
  • A single DPx instance can support up to 100 OLT systems (over 50K subscribers)

Seeking a simple and efficient path from DOCSIS to Software Defined Network?

Reduce network complexity and seamlessly transition to an always on, software defined network

DPx Virtualized Connector

Calix DPx software, along with AXOS based systems, facilitates migration to SDN by leveraging standard NETCONF interfaces to enable direct integration to anySDN controller.

  • Docker based container architecture
  • Leverages NETCONF/YANG interfaces
  • DPoE/DPoG conformant virtual network function (VNF)
  • Emulates virtual CMTS (vCMTS)
  • Emulates cable modems for provisioning (vCM)
  • Emulates multi-media terminal adapter (vMTA)
