Calix unveils new OS for SDN-enabled access networks

Tuesday 27 October 2015 | 16:18 CET | News

Gigabit fibre deployment specialist Calix has launched a Linux-based network operating system and software platform designed for the specific needs of the access network. The software, dubbed AXOS, or Access eXtensible Operating System, is completely hardware independent, allowing for software defined access in which all software functions in the access network can be developed and run without relying on the underlying hardware and associated silicon chipsets. Calix said the fully programmable OS accelerates time-to-revenue, eliminates service disruptions and reduces operational complexity for service providers.

AXOS and its software defined access technology were demonstrated to Calix customers at the twelfth annual Calix User Group Conference held earlier this week in Las Vegas. The software platform was also shown running on the company’s G.fast offerings showcased at the Broadband World Forum in London earlier this month.
