The Calix Network Innovation platform consolidates and moves service-enabling functions such as AAA, IP address management, and IP routing closer to the subscriber-facing network—simplifying service deployment and network operations workflows
SAN JOSE, CA – February 17, 2022 – Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) enhances the world’s first consolidated subscriber management solution, advancing the Subscriber Management Module (SMm) in the Intelligent Access EDGE. These enhancements include simplified subscriber authentication and subscriber service changes, zero-touch provisioning, and IPv4 address optimization. The enhanced SMm capabilities simplify how the broadband service provider (BSP) provisions, monitors, and maintains subscribers and their services. In addition, the new capabilities dramatically reduce the systems required to deliver subscriber services, simplifying service delivery workflows. With a simplified network architecture, BSPs have greater visibility across the subscriber-facing network to gain insight into network utilization and performance, making subscriber management easier and faster.
These new capabilities ensure that service delivery to subscribers is seamless—from deployment to authentication and billing. This helps BSPs take another step toward complete end-to-end automation, further enhancing the subscriber experience. Here are the latest enhancements.
Consolidating and moving subscriber-and service-enabling functions closer to the subscriber-facing network enables BSPs to better collect and analyze data as well as develop insights and predictions to further simplify the network and operations. This also excites subscribers with offers of new and more efficient capabilities and services. Calix Services also provide support, using industry best practices, to develop actionable Subscriber Management transformation plans.
“For us, it’s all about simplicity and subscriber satisfaction,” says Sorin Esanu, network engineer at California-based Race Communications. “By moving everything closer to the subscriber-facing network, we reduce the number of systems we have to look after, and it really simplifies our deployments. That lets us serve and satisfy our subscribers right away, without the need for massive integrations. Meanwhile, automating workflows saves us loads of time and focuses our efforts on new projects. I am looking forward to leveraging the new capabilities in AXOS.”
“Powered by the Network Innovation Platform, the Intelligent Access EDGE solution continues to redefine how broadband service providers build their networks by simplifying architectures and operations,” said Michel Langlois, chief technology officer at Calix. “This enables BSPs to focus on enhancing the subscriber experience.”
