Melita has selected Calix's AXOS E7-2 Intelligent Modular System and the AXOS E3-2 Intelligent PON Node to power its new GPON network, which will enable a full suite of next-generation services for business customers across Malta.

Melita is a nationwide, quadruple-play operator offering state of the art converged telecommunications services to residences and businesses across Malta. The operator delivers its residential and business services through its converged 4.5G and DOCSIS 3.1 HFC network. In order to improve its service offering to business customers, Melita turned to Calix systems for a solution that integrated with existing network elements.

Incorporating Calix AXOS across multiple platforms offers an increased level of operational efficiency. The new network will include E7-2 systems and E3-2 nodes for maximum deployment flexibility to deliver always-on service to businesses spanning a diverse array of service areas across the island.

The diversity of the terrain in Malta necessitated the E3-2’s “deploy anywhere” design that can be mounted aerially, in a pedestal, or on a pole, enabling Melita to add resiliency to their network and ensure connectivity in diverse geographical areas. The small form factor, environmentally hardened AXOS E7-2 access solution offers Melita a common operational service model that can be leveraged regardless of the physical technology layer or deployment location.

Melita continually invests in network technology to provide best in class connectivity services to its customers. Calix AXOS will allow Melita to offer more cost-effective and resilient connectivity to its business customers.

Michael Weening, EVP of Field Operations, Calix
The combination of the AXOS platform with the E7-2 system and E3-2 node allows Melita to establish one common operational model across its network for unparalleled flexibility and agility.
