Calix announced it has past the 100 service provider deployment milestone for its AXOS Gfast solutions, which enable fiber-like speeds within multi-dwelling unit (MDU) without the cost of rewiring the building.
Powered by its Software Defined Access (SDA) platform, the Calix AXOS Gfast solutions allow service providers globally to reuse the copper and coaxial cable infrastructure to offer true symmetrical gigabit experience in challenging MDU environments.
With the latest additions of the industry’s first 48-port Gfast solutions to the Calix AXOS Gfast portfolio, service providers can more cost-effectively serve subscribers in higher-density MDUs such as those found in large cities.
The E3-48F Gfast Remote Node (sealed DPU) and E5-48F Gfast Nodes leverage the frequency range up to 212 MHz, which doubles broadband speeds over copper and, when deployed with Calix cDTA and bonding technologies, delivers symmetrical speeds of up to 2 Gbps to subscribers.
When combined with the Calix E3-16F and E5-16F Gfast nodes, the Calix claims that its AXOS Gfast portfolio comprises the industry’s largest number of Gfast tested configurations in the Broadband Forum Gfast Certification Program.
In May, Calix unveiled SDN powered NG-PON2 technology with the ability to bond multiple channels or wavelengths of over fiber, to deliver up to 40 Gbps downstream, or 80 Gbps of aggregate bandwidth over a single strand of fiber, as part of the requirements for Verizon.
