CityFibre Powering UK Broadband Networks with Calix AXOS

SAN JOSE, CA — CityFibre, a UK alternative provider of fiber network infrastructure, is partnering with Calix, a provider of broadband communications access systems, to deploy the software defined access (SDA) operating system across its fiber networks.

Future 10-Gig Capacity
The implementation of the Calix AXOS platform will allow CityFibre to emerge as the UK’s only advanced-intelligence, wholesale infrastructure company. This partnership future proofs their capability to deliver 10 gigabit services to every home and business, with the potential for speeds of up to 100 gigabits in the future.

Open-access, SDN Ecosystem
Once deployed, the Calix AXOS platform will enable CityFibre to deliver a truly open-access, software defined networking (SDN) ecosystem, supporting any customer implementation from legacy OSS/BSS systems to end-to-end SDN implementations. CityFibre’s AXOS enabled network will provide carrier, mobile operator, and ISP customers with unprecedented levels of programmability, network intelligence, and automation as well as differentiated product and service experiences to end users.

This capability, delivered across a modern full fiber network designed and built to serve all verticals, is expected to help fuel innovation in NG-PON2, 5G, and artificial intelligence, as well as autonomous and IoT technologies. In turn, this will speed the deployment of smart homes, smart businesses, and smart cities.

Analytics, Remote Management and Automation Tools
The combination of AXOS and the Calix E9-2 Intelligent Edge System opens a world of possibilities for new service introduction while delivering operational efficiencies to CityFibre. Intelligent analytics, remote management capabilities, and advanced automation tools will enable the reduction of network costs, simplify operations, and optimize both partner and subscriber experience for years to come.

“The Calix and CityFibre visions of a software defined access future are perfectly aligned. CityFibre built its network from the very beginning to take advantage of all that a fiber infrastructure can enable, while we built AXOS with the intelligence to take that foundation to the next level,” said Michael Weening, Calix executive vice president of field operations. “With AXOS, CityFibre can more rapidly deliver new products, services, and features to the market, further distancing itself from legacy competitive offerings that fail to enable true market differentiation. As we continue to innovate on the AXOS platform, the continued speed, agility, and efficiencies we enable will allow CityFibre and its partners to change the UK’s broadband market forever.”
