In addition, the Calix Whole Home Wi-Fi and Smart Home Enablement Services have been updated to help CSPs reduce their time to market and monetize new whole home and managed Wi-Fi services.

The Calix Whole Home Wi-Fi and Smart Home Enablement Services support network operations, customer care, and field technicians in their assessment, support, and delivery of whole home Wi-Fi, managed Wi-Fi, and smart home services. Through a series of remote and onsite consultations, the Calix Services team partners with CSPs to accelerate their solution deployments with hands-on guidance during actual field installations, incorporating best practices for hardware placement, subscriber turnup, and troubleshooting to ensure success.

In addition to the enhanced services, the latest release of the Calix Smart Home and Business solution includes improved back-end processes result in more accurate identification of devices that are connected to home networks and displayed to consumers within the Calix Smart Home App. It also has updated container-based functionality within EXOS that allows for wireless connections to Bluetooth speakers for consumers seeking a premium audio experience.

The Whole Home Wi-Fi and Smart Home Enablement Services from Calix not only benefit those new to Managed Wi-Fi but service providers like Consolidated, that have been doing it for a while.

Partnerships with device makers and other connected companies are making it easier than ever to bring smart home services to market, but if past efforts have taught the industry anything, the ability to pivot quickly toward new opportunities is paramount.
