Calix establishes market leadership as momentum for everyPON strategy grows

Calix AXOS is the only software access platform with a portfolio of systems that will power networks built on all PON technologies—GPON, XGS-PON, 10G EPON, and NG-PON2. With more than 75 customers on its 10G PON solutions, market adoption is ramping quickly for simplified next generation networks.

Verizon provides higher bandwidth speeds and lower latency to customers with AXOS

Demonstration is a major milestone on the path towards providing higher bandwidth speeds and lower latency to customers over Verizon’s Intelligent Edge Network using AXOS. Verizon and Calix achieved 34 Gbps speeds over fiber optic cable through use of a bonded NG-PON2 ONT prototype on Verizon’s simplified, increasingly automated fiber network. 

Verizon and Calix achieves speeds of 8 Gbps using NGPON2 technology

With the help of next generation technology, Verizon has raised the bar for customer internet connection. 

NGPON2 standards upgrade the hardware and software in the Optical Line Terminals (OLT) at the end of fiber cables to provide faster speeds, lower latency, simplification of operations and increased automation in the fiber network.  


It's Time to Deploy 10G PON

Recent announcements like Google’s Stadia and sales of Facebook’s Oculus VR are rapidly driving up the bandwidth in homes, and increasing the strain on the PON and the network. Analysts indicate that 2020 will see a significant increase in the deployment of 10G PON.  Listen to this webinar to learn the latest on 10G PON and beyond technology options, as well as details on best practices for deployment.

Delivering on the promise of software defined, converged networks

Learn how your business would benefit if you could converge your multiple services networks and reduce the number of network elements you have to provision and coordinate.


Lee Hicks – Verizon VP of Technology Planning discusses their vision of one network and how they will leverage NG-PON2 as well as consolidate  network elements to build the network of tomorrow.

Learn what it takes to deploy NG-PON2.


Why do I need NG-PON2 when my GPON still has plenty of
bandwidth left?

NG-PON2 is more than just another PON technology. 

It enables:

  • Separation of services over wavelengths while still maintaining a single optical distribution network (ODN)
  • Seamless movement of services or reduction in split ratios without service interruption
  • Future proofing the network with the ability to bond channels to gain more bandwidth as needed

Wavelength Mobility Explained

Seamlessly upgrade OLTs and reduce split ratios without service interruption, using NG-PON2’s Wavelength mobility.


Overview of NG-PON2 Channel Bonding

Learn how NG-PON2 channel bonding and AXOS can future-proof your network.


NG-PON2 Channel Bonding

Calix engineer Chris Bernard demonstrates some of the advantages of NG-PON2 technology such as channel bonding for increased bandwidth.


Frequently asked questions about Calix AXOS NG-PON2 Solutions

What is NG-PON2?

  • NG-PON2 (Next Generation Passive Optical Network 2, or ITU-T G.989) is the first multi-wavelength access standard
  • NG-PON2 supports from 4 to 8 wavelengths of 10 Gbps each over a single fiber
  • Premises tunable lasers and receivers enable multi-gigabit broadband services

What is XGS-PON?

  • XGS-PON is a 10G symmetric standard (ITU G.9807.1) deployed similar to GPON

What ONT’s are available for NG-PON2 and XGS-PON?

Which Calix AXOS systems support XGS-PON and NG-PON2?


What applications are driving
Next Gen PON?

MDU Residential Services

  • New technologies like G.fast deployed in multi-tenant buildings require higher fiber-to-the-building speeds than today's 2.5 GPON or point-to-point gigabit Ethernet

Business and Mobile Services

  • Businesses need multi-gigabit speeds, symmetrical services, and committed service rates
  • Business and business service types can be isolated on dedicated wavelengths for security and QOS

SFU Residential Services

  • Subscribers are streaming more content in 4K and adding more devices rapidly adding more devices causing an increasing need for bandwidth    
  • Open Access networks are driving the need for multiple service providers on a common infrastructure

How does Next Gen PON benefit service providers?

New Markets and Applications

Expands addressable market to larger businesses and MDUs over a common, already deployed infrastructure


Capture Customer Share

Grow market share against advanced service offerings from competitors


Keep Up with Consumer Bandwidth Demands

Service provider can keep up with projected consumer bandwidth growth over the next decade


A Superior Subscriber Experience

Offering the best end user experience is critical to sustainable service provider differentiation
