Calix Enhanced Smart Home Offerings Reduce Time to Market


  • Calix

SAN JOSE, CA — Calix announced enhancements to both the Calix Smart Home and Business solution and the supporting Professional Services that are enabling communications service providers (CSPs) to accelerate and monetize the delivery of new and differentiated subscriber offerings. The enhanced Calix Smart Home and Business solution, powered by EXOS, includes upgrades to the Calix Smart Home app for device identification and improved GigaSpire MAX connectivity to Bluetooth audio devices. 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 exciting improvements:

  • Device Identification: 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.
  • GigaSpire MAX Connectivity: updated container-based functionality within EXOS allows for wireless connections to Bluetooth speakers for consumers seeking a premium audio experience.

While the long-term revenue potential of the smart home is significant, CSPs have recognized that its implementation is a multi-step journey that begins with sensational Wi-Fi coverage. Recent market research from Parks Associates, documented in a new white paper (commissioned by Calix) titled “Open for Business: Future Flexibility for Smart Home Service,” indicates that smart home use cases and their value propositions are still evolving.

Rather than CSPs being limited to a single use case in the smart home, the continuously enhanced Calix Smart Home and Business solution, powered by EXOS, paired with professional services enable CSPs to quickly adopt and deploy an open, cloud-based platform with hardware-agnostic technologies that take advantage of an ever-expanding ecosystem of partners.
