Leading system integrator and Calix Certified Partner CCI Systems (CCI) is adding Calix Software Defined PON solutions to enhance their portfolio of services for cable operators.

Through this partnership, CCI’s customers will be able to benefit from the AXOS platform to quickly deliver always-on services over GPON, NG-PON2, or 10G EPON technologies.

As CCI guides this transformation from DOCSIS based hybrid-fiber coax (HFC) to an all-fiber network, their cable operator customers are well positioned with Calix AXOS to adopt SDN control and orchestration into their networks at their own pace while adding the flexibility afforded to them through the portability of AXOS to virtualize network functions.

Calix and CCI said they are seeing a strong preference among cable operators of all sizes to deploy all-fiber solutions in their greenfield opportunities. They also are experiencing a burgeoning interest in Software Defined PON as the technology of choice in these “clean-slate” deployments. However, both companies are also beginning to see many operators in ultra-competitive environments and in more rural and suburban settings plan to cap investment in their traditional HFC networks. Instead, they are increasing their deployment of fiber to every subscriber.

Whether it is a greenfield expansion or a brownfield upgrade, CCI and Calix have gained deep deployment expertise from real-world HFC to all-fiber network transformations. Their partnership provides cable operators with the innovation and expert guidance to accelerate the transformation of their networks, their operational models, and their businesses.

If an operator wants to deploy PON as an overlay to their HFC network or if they opt for a complete FTTH overhaul, Calix Software Defined PON solutions will be able to meet their unique needs.

Calix Software Defined PON solutions, built on AXOS, the world’s only SDA, give cable operators a foundation that can support both DOCSIS and SDN today.
