Calix AXOS Accelerates Delivery of Gigabit over Copper Solutions to MDUs

  • Calix
PETALUMA, CA — Calix, a provider of broadband communications access systems, announced the expansion of its family of AXOS G.fast solutions to support a true gigabit experience to copper-fed subscribers in MDUs.

Collective Dynamic Timing Allocation (cDTA) Technology
Collective dynamic timing allocation (cDTA) technology has been added to Calix's G.fast portfolio, delivering symmetrical gigabit speeds over loops lengths up to 240 meters. An ideal solution for MDUs with copper wiring, especially those buildings passed by fiber infrastructure, this solution puts the promise of gigabit speeds within reach of millions of new subscribers around the globe. Since Calix G.fast solutions are built on AXOS, a software defined access architecture, they can be implemented into existing networks in a fraction of the time of traditional solutions.

Fiber-like Performance over Copper
“MDUs have always been a challenge for service providers – highly competitive, difficult to access, and operationally and financially challenging for new technology deployment,” said Teresa Mastrangelo, principal analyst and founder of BroadbandTrends. “G.fast has reinvigorated interest in MDUs by mitigating many of those operational and financial barriers by utilizing existing copper to advanced broadband services to gigabit speeds. Now, innovations like cDTA and G.fast bonding will keep copper thriving within MDUs, giving service providers fiber-like performance to stay ahead of their competition while leveraging their existing infrastructure that provides a winning scenario for the service provider, the owner, and the subscriber tenant.”

Dynamically Changing the Ratio between Upstream and Sownstream in under 100 Milliseconds
cDTA is a game-changing technology for service providers leveraging G.fast over copper, as it allows service providers to fully utilize all the bandwidth available across a single or bonded copper pair. When a subscriber requires more upstream or downstream bandwidth, cDTA will dynamically change the ratio between upstream and downstream in less than 100 milliseconds. A powerful differentiated feature uniquely available today only in the latest chips from Sckipio, Calix was able to leverage the power of AXOS to quickly integrate this cutting-edge technology into its systems.

Calix true gigabit solutions over G.fast are end-to-end, comprised of multiple AXOS-enabled system form factors, a variety of premises devices, and a family of Calix Cloud services that provide insights to lower OPEX and CAPEX while enabling an unmatched subscriber experience:

  • The Calix AXOS E3-16F Sealed Access Node and E5-16F Access Node feature 16 G.fast ports as well as support for cDTA and bonding for symmetrical gigabit speeds.

  • The 844FB GigaCenter featuring Carrier Class Wi-Fi and the 801FB GigaPoint are G.fast premises solutions that support bonding and a full symmetrical gigabit throughput.

  • Calix Cloud provides powerful cloud analytics and management services, allowing service providers to discover new service offerings, simplify network operations and subscriber support, and transform their business.
