Calix is committed to making it easier for our customers to keep up with the latest platform and solution releases across our entire portfolio. To ensure that we provide a consistent and predictable view of our new capabilities each quarter, we have moved to a standard release cadence. Every quarter we will share our latest releases starting in the second week of the second month.
Here you will find all of the latest software and hardware updates to our strategic platforms—Calix Cloud, EXOS, AXOS, and Calix Services. We will also provide updates to our integrated solutions such as Revenue EDGE and Intellgent Access EDGE.
Every day, Calix partners with innovative service providers to deliver the best subscriber experience possible. The Revenue EDGE is designed to provide a powerful connection with your subscribers and to assist in your battle with consumer giants that are competing for your subscribers’ mindshare.
Highlights of the 20.4 Release include:
EDGE Insights—You can leverage real-time data to engage subscribers and elevate your brand as if you are a consumer giant. The careful integration of insights and visibility of key applications, through EDGE Insights, is augmented in this release with these enhancements:
EDGE Systems—In the last release (20.3 in August), we announced the availability of the BLAST u4 and Mesh BLAST u4m systems, combining carrier-class reliability, ultimate Wi-Fi 6 technology, and great design. Just prior to Release 20.4, we announced the BLAST u6x, the world’s first all-in-one Ethernet/GPON/XGS-PON Wi-Fi 6 system, which will be available in 2021.
All GigaSpire BLAST systems are powered by EXOS, are fully integrated with Support Cloud and Marketing Cloud, and allow you to leverage both the CommandIQ™ subscriber application and the Revenue EDGE Suites.
Primary enhancements to the EDGE Systems in this release include:
EDGE Services—In Release 20.4, CommandIQ™ now has the option to display all settings in French.
EDGE Suites—This release features the addition of ‘My Priorities’ within ExperienceIQ™, providing application and device prioritization. Having the ability to prioritize the types of traffic coming into the home network (e.g., video or gaming), as well as the devices accessing bandwidth (e.g., TV, laptop, gaming system) allows subscribers to maintain a level of control over their connected experience. For example, when a subscriber wants to stream a movie to their TV, they do not want the kids’ gaming systems to disrupt their experience. Similarly, those working from home might want to ensure that their laptop and other work-related devices get priority during the hours of 8am-6pm.
EDGE Enablement—Our customers using the Revenue EDGE solution have access to hundreds of world-class EDGE Enablement marketing assets, allowing you to quickly and easily launch branded campaigns that leverage the real-time behavioral insights provided by Marketing Cloud. These assets range from digital advertisements, mobile marketing, product support collateral, branding, subscriber education guides, support and promo videos, and web /social media templates. In 20.4, we have:

With the 20.4 release, we once again focused our efforts on not only delivering new enhanced feature functionalities but also on simplifying everything that relates to delivering a high quality subscriber experience. Many new and existing communications service providers (CSPs) are building AXOS-powered Intelligent Access EDGE networks with XGS-PON as the underlying technology of choice. The primary driver being the ability to deliver symmetrical high-bandwidth upstream services that their subscribers need as they work and learn from anywhere. Leading CSPs understand that the access network is a long-term investment and are choosing AXOS to future-proof their network as they embrace today’s new technologies.
The 20.4 update introduces the market launch of the GP1100X 10G PON ONT. Simple to install, activate, and maintain, the Calix GP1100X GigaPoint is a high-performance, indoor, XGS-PON ONT with a 2.5G Ethernet (GE) interface to enable CSPs to cost effectively deliver greater than 1G for residential IPTV and data services, along with one voice line that supports carrier-grade VoIP. The GP1100X GigaPoint is optimized for residential applications, providing a single 2.5GE LAN port that enables more than a gigabit of symmetrical services over XGS-PON and is fully supported by the Intelligent Access EDGE portfolio of systems.
Highlights of the 20.4 release include:
