System Innovation

  • Resilient, modular, stackable form factor that scales to support 16  high-density PON line cards when using the CLX3001 Control or the ASM5001 Aggregation Service Manager card
  • Aggregate services from existing Layer 2 access networks utilizing the ASM3001 and  ASM5001 Aggregation Services Manager
  • Flexible architecture enables system growth without replacement

Fiber Innovation

  • GPON, XGS-PON, NG-PON2  scaling from 16 to 512 Ports in a single managed system
  • Full non-blocking, redundant uplink options

AXOS Software Module Supported

  • RPm, ARm, SMm on either the CLX3001 or ASM3001 or ASM5001
  • Consolidate and move the functions of subscriber management, edge routing w/ MPLS, aggregation, and OLT closer to the subscriber based on selected modules

Modularity extends beyond hardware

The modularity of the system extends beyond hardware. Powered by AXOS, the E9-2 Intelligent Access System delivers on the promise of Software Defined Access. The fast, always-on, and simple network provides a stateful system that allows incremental enhancements or feature additions.

The AXOS componentized nature ensures the E9-2 is ideally suited for virtualized functions in a complex network environment. The E9-2 with AXOS can accelerate network transformation by seamlessly coexisting with virtualized architectures, ultimately driving operational complexity and cost out of networks.

Fast. Always On. Simple

With AXOS, back office integration has never been easier. Use AXOS Sandbox to build a virtual edge-to-edge Software Defined Access network that speeds OSS integration and software certification with dramatic economic results.
