Dramatically Reduced TCO in data center/central office/headends

Consolidation of functions

  • Reduced needs for separate aggregation switches
  • Subscriber management centralizes policy management

Faster deployment and lower cost

  • Fewer systemsm to purchase
  • Fewer systems to provision and manage
  • Less rack space, HVAC, and power required

Next Generation Central Office

Data centers have grown and perfected distributed architecture over many years.  This architecture ensures that capacity and bandwidth can easily be scaled to the needs of the datacenter at any given time.  The E9 architecture brings the best of the data center thinking to the central office from the elastic nature of adding servers to the technologies utilized to transported traffic between servers, routers and switches within the data center.

Software Defined Access

The modularity of the system extends beyond the physical.  Powered by AXOS, the E9-2 Intelligent Edge 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 addition. 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 the operational complexity and costs out of networks.

Fast. Always On. Simple.

The E9-2 supports multiple provisioning and back office integration options including Netconf, Openflow, and Calix Activate.
