Introducing the Calix E7-2 10GE-12 Aggregation line card

An innovative solution that enables bandwidth and network capacity to be added easily, and fiber to be conserved without the need to bury more lines. 

Why spend when you can save through the power of AXOS aggregation


Today, our industry is undergoing a paradigm shift---one where the future of high speed, high definition video, interactive virtual-reality gaming and other high bandwidth applications are the norm versus the exception. But, as a result, many service providers are either running out of available bandwidth or finding it increasingly difficult to deliver higher bandwidth services while managing and maintaining access points that are spread over great distances.​ This presents two challenges:

  • Reduce the amount of fiber and upstream router ports required, lowering the overall cost of your network and the time to maintain it
  • Make a substantial impact on the quality of service delivered to your subscribers over existing access technologies

Powered by AXOS, the E7-2 Aggregation line card not only provides significant capital cost savings, but also improves time to revenue while reducing your overall cost of operations. 

Calix AXOS aggregation solutions deliver high-density aggregation and transport flexibility to support 10GE business and residential services and provide outside plant cost savings. Download the new Calix Solution Brief: When Less is More... the Power of Aggregation Simplified to learn more.
