Help your subscribers make their 'best buy' while you capture
the Wi-Fi revenue opportunity

With the addition of the 804Mesh satellites and software enhancements to your existing GigaCenters, give your customers a sensational Wi-Fi experience for pennies a day. Managed Wi-Fi is a critical first step, but the journey to sensational subscriber experience doesn’t stop there. Your subscribers may experience Wi-Fi issues in hard-to-reach areas of their home. An 804Mesh satellite is the answer to extending the great service that you provide to include all areas of their home — and beyond.

Your subscribers have likely checked out the rows of routers, gateways and mesh extenders online or in their local retailer. The trouble is, what seems like a ‘best buy’ will cause headaches for them and for you. Research shows that more than half of broadband households experience Wi-Fi issues. And, most of the time, consumers are going to call their service provider help desk for support; regardless of where they purchased the device. Not much of a ‘best buy’ for you or your subscriber.

What is Mesh-Enhanced Carrier Class Wi-Fi?

Mesh-Enhanced Carrier Class Wi-Fi is a solution designed specifically for service providers that combines the Calix 804Mesh satellites, GigaCenter, and Support Cloud. Being part of a carrier-class system, the Calix GigaCenter supports smart channel selection and dynamic frequency selection.

With the introduction of the 804Mesh satellites, service providers can now offer a whole home Wi-Fi service that ensures the highest quality connection throughout an entire home or small business. When deployed in conjunction with the Calix Cloud, service providers now have the capabilities required for a fully managed Wi-Fi offering that delivers unsurpassed quality of service to subscribers.
