AXOS E9-2 Intelligent Edge System

The revolutionary AXOS E9-2 Intelligent Edge System leverages the unconstrained architecture that has been perfected in data centers all over the world enabling unprecedented scale and flexibility. The E9-2 Intelligent Edge System is built on the mature, award winning AXOS Software Defined Access (SDA) architecture.  AXOS enables service providers to increase the velocity at which new services are delivered as well as ensures in this fast paced world the network is always on.

The AXOS E9-2 Intelligent Edge System, with the AXOS RPm Routing Protocol Module) and AXOS SMm (Subscriber Management Module), enables the consolidation of subscriber management, aggregation, and OLT into a single evolutionary system delivering unparalled scale and a dramatic reduction in the total cost of ownership (TCO).

Dramatically Reduced TCO in data center/central office/headends

Consolidation of functions

  • Reduced needs for separate aggregation switches
  • Simplified path to Intelligent Access with AXOS RPm
  • Centralize subscriber management and Policy with AXOS SMm

Faster deployment and lower cost

  • Fewer systems 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.

Thinking about deploying a CORD (Central Office Re-architected as the Datacenter) architecture? The E9-2 Intelligent Edge System gives you a jumpstart. With the unconstrained AXOS architecture, you can get started with the E9-2’s innovative disaggregated system and easily migrate to a CORD architecture when you’re ready.

Software Defined Access

The modularity of the system extends beyond hardware.  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 additions. 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 operational complexity and cost out of networks.

Fast. Always On. Simple.

With AXOS, back office integration has never been easier.  Use AXOS Sandbox to build a virtual edge-to-edge Software Defined Access network that speeds OSS integration and software certification with dramatic economic results.
