SAN JOSE, CA — Mahaska Communication Group (MCG), a Oskaloosa, Iowa-based CSP, has deployed the Calix AXOS software platform to simplify network operations and meet future subscriber demands as it covers southeast Iowa with fiber. AXOS radically speeds up Mahaska’s deployment capabilities by enabling them to use a common operational service model regardless of the physical technology layer or the access network deployment location. By partnering with Calix, the regional communications service provider (CSP) is also extending its network experience into subscriber homes and businesses with Mesh-Enhanced Carrier Class Wi-Fi.

The end-to-end set of Calix solutions enables MCG to future-proof its network for the next wave of broadband service innovations and to deliver the best possible experience to its subscribers. The E7-2 Intelligent Modular System delivers all the benefits of the AXOS platform, including the deployment simplicity of GPON. Additionally, the built-in network troubleshooting capabilities of the AXOS Diagnostics Toolbox allow MCG to maintain an always on, reliable network while reducing operational costs and expensive truck rolls.

“Our biggest commitment is to the communities we serve, so we are putting the AXOS platform in place that will ensure they have access to the communications technologies they need to thrive—both now and in the future,” said Frank Hansen, general manager for Mahaska Communication Group. “Having access to the network troubleshooting capabilities of the diagnostic toolbox will further enhance our ability to deliver high-speed fiber optic links to homes and businesses across southeast Iowa. These services generate revenue and growth opportunities for these local communities, even placing them among the country’s leaders in communications technology.”
