An Ethernet Broadband Access Pioneer

Calix B6 Access Nodes

The B6 Access Nodes deliver field proven TDM over Ethernet services while simplifying copper networks.  Each highly flexible B6 is hardened for either central office/data center or remote terminal deployments and is available in 3 chassis sizes. The B6 features distributed traffic processing, which eliminates the need for common equipment while simplifying network and service expansion.

B6-012 Ethernet Service Access Node

The 12RU B6-012 and B6-012i chassis incorporate design advancements that simplify chassis installation and reduce turn-up time.  The B6-012i integrates the intelligent interconnect architecture connections directly into the physical backplane featuring 12 service line card slots.

B6-006 Ethernet Service Access Node

The 7RU B6-006 is designed for medium density deployments, featuring six line card slots with combination of the numerous B6 line cards. Any B6 line card can be deployed in any slot and in any configuration, with self-discovery and network configuration settings.

B6-001 Ethernet Service Access Node

Each 1RU B6-001 chassis can be populated with any B6 line card deployed as a standalone unit or interconnected with other B6-001. B6 line cards slide into the front of the B6-001 chassis, allowing fast and easy field replacement without disconnecting the existing cabling.
