Open, standards-based, monetized access networking
How do you monetize your assets, build a future-proof low OpEx architecture, and avoid vendor lock-in? Stop thinking about access networks as dumb pipes! The dumb pipe mentality contributed to centralization — great for OTT vendors — but it leaves subscribers exposed and service providers blind to subscriber premises. Calix has a different view: centralize content while distributing subscriber service management based on network intelligence.
Subscriber insight-driven decisions delivering faster time to revenue at a lower total cost of ownership.
Software Defined Access is an open framework for building next generation access networks that leverages DevOps, Instrumentation, Analytics, Flow Awareness, Software Defined Networking and Network Virtualization, extended across the access network and driven by the harsh environment and high rate of change of the physical layer.
Instrumentation, analytics, subscriber management, security
Policy, intent-based Quality of Experience (QoE), programmable
Stateful, componentized, self-healing
Enable the migration to the future
Consistent with traditional CDN/core, NGCO, CORD, virtualized, on box, any SDN controller and orchestrator
Pipes, speeds-and-feeds oriented
System and OS limited
Hardware compensation for high-risk software failures
One size fits all architectures
Fixed, restrictive path that limits future options
Fiber, copper, wireless? Business, residential, wireless aggregation? They’re all included and all part of the Software Defined Access network solutions from Calix.
OpEx can consume 70% of overall network costs. Imagine cutting that to just 14%. Watch Verizon’s Lee Hicks explain how. Now what would you do with the 56% unused budget?
Calix VP of Product Line Management Shane Eleniak discusses in the March issue of ISE the realities of bringing SDN to the access network, and how a new concept called Software Defined Access rapidly delivers new services, a superior customer experience, and unparalleled reliability for service providers.
