Calix EXA E-Series

EXA E7-2 Modular Chassis Access System

Looking to deploy bandwidth to lower density locations, challenging spaces or not sure what your take-rate will be? The E7-2 combines the flexibility of temperature hardening, multiple technologies, and small 1RU form factor with the ability to expand the system as needed. 

The E7-2 delivers low-to-high density GPON, point-to-point GE / Active Ethernet, and vectored VDSL2 services to central offices or to remote cabinets. This flexibility ensures that service providers can focus on deploying the capacity you need and grow as you succeed.  

  • North America’s most widely deployed access system.
  • Carrier Class GPON/Pt-to-Pt/ Active Ethernet, Vectored VDSL2 Layer 2 services.
  • High density copper/fiber solutions for outside plant.
  • Modular architecture with integrated transport and subscriber interfaces.
  • Pay-as-you-succeed model.

Key features

System Innovation

  • Scalable from 1RU to 10RU 20 line cards enabling service providers to meet service demands from low density to high density
  • Temperature hardened for installation in remote cabinets

Fiber Innovation

  • 100G Backplane ready for technologies such as 10G PON
  • GPON scaling from 4 to 320 Ports in a single managed system
  • Active Ethernet scaling from 12 to 480  ports in a single managed system
  • Integrated transport and aggregation enabling service providers to meet varied access network demands

Copper innovation

  • VDSL2 System Level vectoring up to 384 subscriber ports ensuring all subscribers get the best service possible
  • 96 Ports of System level vectoring without additional hardware, saving both space and capital expense
  • 8 Pair DMT bonding to enable high bandwidth copper services as well as copper transport
  • Supports integrated splitters, integrated VoIP or data only ensuring to enable service providers to determine the best and most efficient voice delivery method for them
