Calix Doubles GPON Port Density on E7-2 Modular ESAP

  • Calix
PETALUMA, CA - Calix, Inc., announced the addition of the GPON-8 card to the widely deployed Calix E7-2 modular Ethernet Service Access Platform (ESAP), significantly enhancing the flexibility and economics of high density fiber access deployment. The new card doubles the GPON port density of the E7-2 ESAP, enabling 16 GPON ports, 8 gigabit Ethernet (GE) ports and multiple 10GE uplink ports in each 1 rack unit (1RU) E7-2 modular chassis. With this enhancement to the E7-2's pay-as-you-grow architecture, communications service providers can leverage pluggable optical interface modules (OIMs) on each card slot to incrementally grow their fiber access deployments to deliver broadband service speeds of up to 1 GBPS to over 1000 subscribers with each modular E7-2 deployed.

Improved Fiber Access Resources
The enhanced port density of the E7-2 highlights the expanding portfolio of fiber access resources available to Calix customers that continually improve their economics of deployment and opportunities for new advanced broadband services. While the increased port density of the GPON-8 delivers new CAPEX efficiencies, new Calix software tools like Smart Activate provide OPEX savings through an intuitive, easy-to-use interface for deployment of CALIX optical network terminals (ONTs) and Residential Services Gateways (RSGs). With Smart Activate, Calix ONTs and RSGs can easily be identified, provisioned, and with one touch activated from common mobile devices like tablets and smart phones. In addition, with the recent announcement of Home Gateway upgrades to 700GE ONTs and the availability of 836GE RSGs for Calix E7 GPON customers, Calix service provider customers can efficiently deploy RSGs at every fiber-fed premises, providing new service opportunities for in-home network management - especially when used in conjunction with CALIX Consumer Connect software.
